Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has a long tradition of offering an annual assessment conference on our campus.  This year we are expanding the global reach of the conference by offering the RosEvaluation Conference as an online event.  I hope you will take advantage of participating in the high quality webinars that will be broadcast on April 1 and 2, 2013.

Keynote Speakers:
Rebecca Bates, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Integrated Engineering at Minnesota State University, Mankato
Ron Ulseth, P.E., Instructor and Director, Iron Range Engineering at Itasca Community College and Minnesota State University, Mankato

Keynote Topic: “Assessing Project-Based Learning: Providing Evidence for Continuous Improvement”

Iron Range Engineering is an upper-division engineering program that uses a 100% project-based pedagogy. The learning model integrates technical, professional and engineering design content in a series of four semester-long projects. As part of our application for ABET accreditation, we have developed approaches and tools for assessment and continuous improvement. This talk will present a description of our educational model, including examples of courses and projects that have been used in our program. Program-level tools include student outcome portfolios, stakeholders input sessions and 4 faculty summits a year. Course- and project-level tools include a broad range of activities including oral exams, reflection memos, deep learning activity reports, scoping documents, final design reviews and client reviews of work and presentations. Participants should gain knowledge about potential tools or combination of tools to use for assessing project-based work at the course or program level.

The complete list of speakers and topics is available on the Registration page.
