Continued discussion on learning outcomes

Overall learning or wages, which is a better measure for liberal education?

Inside Higher Ed recently published a piece on the standards for accreditation. The debate was on how to consider the accreditation process through student learning.  Some suggest the best measures would be placement rate and salary. Yet, others believe the learning outcomes are really where learning is measured. Accordingly, many are using the AAC&U’s LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes with the Lumina Foundation’s DQP. Many feel that use of the above outcomes and DQP are the best tools universities can use in measuring student learning.

Did you attend a listening session at FHSU? If not, keep up with our Facebook page and be on the lookout for e-mails from Dr. Chapman Rackaway to stay up-to-date on the liberal education process.
