Willowbrook, IL (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
Deltak’s Chief Learning Officer, Rob Schnieders, has authored a white paper discussing the importance of measuring student learning outcomes and using those measurements as a means of continuous improvement in higher education. The paper also includes details about a program Deltak is engaging in with one of its partner schools to develop and implement a system to accomplish just that.
The white paper, titled “Measuring Student Success: The Importance of Developing and Implementing Student Learning Outcomes for Continuous Improvement in Higher Education”, will be available at this week’s 16th Annual Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning where Deltak will be exhibiting. Deltak’s Director of Online Learning, David Migliorese, will be in attendance to discuss the details of the paper as well as other ways Deltak is working to further its history of innovations in the online higher education industry.
As Deltak’s Chief Learning Officer, Schnieders leads the Deltak Academic Services group and works with partners and Deltak Partnership Operations to create innovative, high quality online learning experiences for our partners. Schnieders and Deltak have engaged in this initiative because, according to Schnieders, “As educators, we always need to be asking, ‘How can we ensure that our programs are meeting the needs of students and preparing them for future success in education and careers?’ The challenge”, he says, “is creating authentic systems of assessment that can be utilized by students, faculty, and university administration to determine whether students are acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills. Implementing solutions like Learning Outcomes Management provides an opportunity to align performance objectives and to analyze student performance to drive a continuous cycle of performance improvement.”
