Assessment in Action: Demonstrating and Communicating Library Contributions  to Student Learning and Success

The Yale-NUS Library is pleased to host the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) RoadShow Assessment in Action: Demonstrating and Communicating Library Contributions to Student Learning and Success. This workshop is open to the Singapore academic library community, and we look forward to hosting our colleagues on 7 May 2018.

The workshop will be facilitated by Professor Karen Brown. It will address areas of assessment such as: aligning with institutional priorities, developing an inquiry question, assessment evidence and tools, and communication strategies.  Participants will have time to work on their personal learning plans. Effective assessment measures can help libraries enhance collections, user experience, student learning, research support, and more.  This promises to be an exciting day of learning!
