The GWLA Student Learning Outcomes Task Force is organizing a member professional development event, to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 13-15, 2013. (Please note that these dates are a change from the previously announced dates!)

Event content will be based on four themes that are drawn from in-depth interviews with 20 GWLA institutions. The themes for the event are: 
  1. Being Proactive:  Strategies for integrating information literacy student learning outcomes at the program level 
  2. Scaling Assessment:  Designing and implementing program-level assessments for measuring information literacy learning 
  3. A Place at the Table:  Strategies for ensuring librarians are members of discussion about student learning and curriculum 
  4. Impact: How libraries are using data to examine their “impact” on “student success” 

Efforts are being made to make the event as cost effective as possible to encourage maximum attendance. The Task Force suggests teams of at least three attendees from each institution, with the following prioritized organizational roles. 
  1. Head of Instruction/Instruction Coordinator 
  2. Whoever works with assessment of student learning – could be an assessment librarian 
  3. Instruction Librarian that works with large programs for example:  English Composition, First Year Seminar 
  4. Assistant Dean or AUL working on campus educational partnerships 
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas Libraries will host the event. Registration and lodging information will be available shortly!
