8 Keynote Noon - 1 pm (Sunset Ballroom) Russell Lowery-Hart, Ph.D. Vice-President for Academic Affairs Amarillo College Actions WILL Speak Louder Than Words: The Power (and Dilemma) in Assessing the New Texas Core Curriculum Objectives Teddy Roosevelt stated that actions speak louder than words. His claim is a great description of the Texas Core Curriculum Reformation student actions will be much more important to assessment of learning than our traditional approaches. The purpose of the Texas State Core Curriculum reformation is to not only ensure students gain a foundation of knowledge specific to the traditional disciplines of a liberal arts education, but gain skills for the application of such knowledge. The focus of the new core curriculum debate has primarily focused on the six new objectives (critical thinking skills, communication skills, empirical and quantitative skills, teamwork, personal responsibility, and social responsibility) and the courses in which these objectives must be demonstrated and assessed. The proposed core curriculum reformation generally and appropriately leaves course content requirements to the faculty and disciplines. However, the revolution of the core curriculum reformation will be in the innovative, applied, and active teaching strategies that MUST accompany any course used to fulfill these new objectives. Assessment and evaluation must serve as the intersection between student learning and professor pedagogy. Speaker: Dr. Russell Lowery-Hart currently serves as Vice-President for Academic Affairs at Amarillo College, after a lengthy stint as Associate Provost for Academic Affairs at West Texas A&M University. With both positions, Dr. Lowery-Hart focused on improving general education requirements and first year student initiatives. He has created several institution-wide initiatives targeting a common reader program, international travel programs for first year students, curricular reform, instructional improvement, poverty, and partnership development across campus silos. Dr. Lowery-Hart currently serves as the chair for the Executive Committee for the Amarillo No Limits/No Excuses Partners for Postsecondary Success Gates grant. He is a P-16 Regional Advisor for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, where he also served as the chair for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Undergraduate Education Advisory Committee charged with evaluating and redesigning the state of Texas general education requirements and assessments centered on LEAP initiative principles.

10 Horizon A Session Information Concurrent Sessions I (9:00 am - 9:50 am) Building Accountability into the Strategic Plan For some institutions a strategic plan is viewed as a document that must be available during an accreditation visit, but is otherwise a dust collector on many bookshelves. In 2009, Midland College revised its assessment process to link strategic initiatives with its instructional and non-instructional areas. While working through this linking process it was discovered that different degrees of assessment occur at various levels of the organization. Capitalizing on this knowledge allowed for a process that incorporated strategic planning objectives into annual assessment activities. Ultimately a system of strategic planning accountability can be realized through ongoing campus activities. Speaker: Thomas Corll, Ph.D. Director of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning, Midland College Dr. Corll has worked in post-secondary education for eleven years; he is a member in the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and Texas Association for Institutional Research (TAIR).

He has facilitated numerous TAIR workshops, concurrent sessions, and served as a roundtable presenter. His education includes a Bachelor degree in Business Administration; Master of Science in Human Resources; and PhD in Education with a specialization in Training and Performance Improvement interventions. Tom is currently serving as the TAIR Professional Development coordinator.

16 Session Information Concurrent Sessions IV (1:10 pm - 2:00 pm) Horizon A Strategic Planning and Constructive Evolution: It s All About The Mission! Too often, strategic planning is simply an exercise to develop a strategic plan. After the fireworks and excitement fade, our daily jobs continue, perhaps with a renewed focus on assessing our new goals in light of the magical new document. This continues mechanically until the next strategic planning cycle where we wash, rinse, and repeat. This is a tragic, unimaginative, and ineffective approach to management and institutional operation. This fun and humorous session reframes and humanizes strategic planning and pauses to ask why we do what we are doing in the first place. Speaker: John Delony, Ph.D. Assistant Dean for Student Life, School of Law Dr. John Delony is the Assistant Dean for Student Life at the School of Law. He has served as an administrator at three different institutions and has presented nationally on a wide-range of higher education topics.

Horizon B Best Practices for Designing and Assessing Online Discussion Questions Asynchronous discussion provides a unique and effective vehicle for learning in the online classroom. Online discussion can provide students with a venue to express ideas, critically analyze information, apply course concepts, interact with classmates and faculty, construct or co-construct knowledge and reflect on attitudes or values (Kerstein, Pollock, Wilson, 2012). However, it is challenging to create discussion questions that foster critical thinking and robust interaction. It is additionally challenging to assess different aspects of online discussion and provide students with meaningful qualitative and quantitative feedback (Marra, Moore, & Klimczak, 2004). This workshop will provide strategies and tips for meeting these challenges. Speakers: Andrea McCourt, Ph.D. Program Director for Human Resource Development, Dr. Andrea McCourt is the Program Director for the Human Resource Development academic program at Texas Tech University.

17 Horizon C Assessing Transfer Student Experiences with Campus Services: An Alternative Approach Much research confirms campus services are vital to student learning, and students have much to say about various aspects of these services. However, assessing student experiences does not come without a substantial sticker price. More importantly, the results obtained from commercially-produced instruments prove problematic for smaller institutions to drill down to specifics needed for administrators to make improvements to the services they offer to students. This presentation will focus on key aspects of the process that were designed and implemented for engaging students in meaningful dialogues about their experiences with campus services. Speakers: Robert Elliott, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Aviation Science, Eastern New Mexico University Robert Elliott is Assistant Professor of Aviation Science and Coordinator of Student Learning.

Specifically, SACSCOC calls for an institution to develop an acceptable QEP that focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning. Further, when developing a QEP, an institution should be mindful of identifying goals and having a clear plan on how to assess their achievement. (TTU) is in a unique position as one of the first institutions working on the development of the second QEP. This session looks at how the QEP topic selection process changed from Tech s first QEP to the second QEP, the data collection and analysis utilized during topic selection, and an overview of the current status of the second QEP at TTU. 16

20 Concurrent Sessions VI (3:10 pm - 4:00 pm) Horizon A Session Information Meeting the Continuing Challenge of Quantifying Academic Success- Are We There Yet? Academicians are challenged on many levels of practice in their respective colleges; they are encouraged to contribute to their campus communities through excellence in teaching, research and service.
