CLA in the Classroom Academy

Workshop in fall 2008 at Carleton College, in collaboration with Macalester College and St. Olaf College

A Collaborative Event project

CLA in the Classroom Academy will be offered in fall 2008 for 30 Carleton College, Macalester College, and St. Olaf College faculty and staff. The goal of the event is to foster best practices in teaching among these three schools by using assessment to prompt innovation and by demonstrating through assessment an improvement in students' learning.

This event will focus on training faculty to do more diagnostic work with individual students and to develop their own performance tasks modeled on those of the CLA -- the Council for Aid to Education's (CAE) Collegiate Learning Assessment.
