SAC's Celebration of Learning Spring 2021

Submitted by Catherine Cochran on
What is the Purpose of the Assessment?

EMCC faculty and staff sharing best assessment practices from their areas to increase EMCC student learning, and to bring EMCC faculty and staff together remotely. 

Describe the necessity for this assessment

With COVID and majority of courses in a remote modality, we wanted to provide opportunities for colleagues to collaborate, share assess practices, and increase student learning.  

Describe how the practice will be implemented

The goals were to showcase strides you have taken to improve teaching and learning.  As a Learning College, we support student learning through orientation, financial aid processes, tutoring services, art, history, psychology, geology (etc).  All employees were welcomed to share how they are using learning outcomes to learn more about what they do, how this impacts student learning, and how they are making changes to be the best at what you do to support students.  

Interpret, compare, and describe the results

After the workshops, participants were given a Google Form to reflect on their experiences. 

 We had 65 Google Forms completed. 

Common Feedback: "happy with information from sessions; great information shared", "would have liked longer sessions," and "appreciated the breaks in between sessions." 


After analyzing, and reflecting on the outcome, what are the next steps?

The feedback was reviewed by SAC.  Moving forward, we may include the following changes to our event: offer 45 minute sessions instead of 30 minute sessions. 


During the Spring 2021 Celebration of Learning event was hosted by SAC.  EMCC Faculty and staff had an opportunity to facilitate 30 assessment workshops within their areas to share best practices with colleagues and increase student learning.  There were three thirty minute sessions.  Some participants presented for multiple sessions.  We had:

  1. Number of workshops:  12 

  2. Number of presenters:  *12 (session I), 14 ( session II), 10 (session III)

  3. Number of attendees:  *224 attendees 

*Duplicated headcount/some participants didn’t sign in
