NAFSA presented a webinar on the Assessment of Global Learning this week that was attended by some members of the Liberal Education committee. Two assessment items were presented: the Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory (BEVI) and the AAC&U Global Learning VALUE rubric.
The BEVI exists as an analytic tool for assessing global learning. As a pre-/post- tool, the BEVI is excellent at evaluating “who the person is” and then “how the person changes” as a result of the educational experience.
The Global Learning VALUE rubric was presented in the context of Dominican University of California’s context for how they chose to assess global learning.
This rubric can help shape a discussion of learner outcomes in this area for FHSU.
In the related area of intercultural knowledge and competence, we learned about the resources offered by the Intercultural Communication Institute .
