 Audience    Chairs, Discipline Conveners, School Directors
Length of Workshop:      4  hours 
Prerequisite    none

MDC credit courses have been mapped using the Learning Outcomes Mapping template, and the recent CLOA results are available. Designed for administrators and faculty who serve as deans, directors, and lead conveners for the schools and disciplines, this workshop will engage participants in considering the CLOA results in connection with a specific program or concentration map. Prior to the workshop, all participants will receive and review a sample MDC general education map and will identify the strengths and gaps they find. Additionally, the lead/discipline/school chair, director or designee will generate one sample degree audit for a program or concentration in the discipline/school and will email it to the workshop facilitator, who will create a sample map for workshop discussion. during the workshop, discipline and school teams composed of the lead Academic Dean, the chair and Faculty conveners, and selected faculty will discuss the interactions among student Outcome learning, curriculum mapping, and assessment (discipline and Collegwide). By the conclusion of the workshop, the participants will have a clearer understanding of the interaction and will have identified strategies and a preliminary plan to engage their discipline/school faculty in a modification of the maps informed by discipline-specific and collegewide assessment.
