Teaching has moved beyond solely teaching the material to fostering students’ self-awareness, initiative and resilience in learning. For what students think, believe and feel about themselves as learners affects how they orient themselves toward their education. Nowhere is this shift more evident at Skyline College than in the classroom, flex workshops and departmental discussions.
You are invited to the Lifelong Wellness Institutional Student Learning Outcome (ISLO) Town Hall, which will feature reflections from Art, Counseling and Kinesiology/Athletics/Dance faculty on classroom and assessment practices. All integrate lifelong wellness practices into their pedagogy and took part in the assessment.
In addition, the results from the Lifelong Wellness ISLO assessment of 496 students’ mindsets will be available, as will be students’ self-assessments of their own habits and behaviors from the 2016 Community College Survey of Student Engagement.
Please join us on Monday, February 24, from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in Building 4, Room 4-301
to analyze and discuss the implications of the Lifelong Wellness ISLO assessment.
Sponsored by the Institutional Effectiveness Committee and Office of Planning, Research and Institutional Effectiveness.
