Associate Professor Geoffrey Bowers, Professor Pam Mertz, and Associate Professor Kelly Neiles from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry presented a workshop at the 2022 American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) Transforming STEM Higher Education conference “Back to Broken” in Arlington, VA on Friday, Nov. 4.  The title of the workshop was “One Rubric to Rule Them All: The Megalorubric that Maps All Course Learning Outcomes onto Program Learning Outcomes and Facilitates Learner-Centered Assessment.”  Attendees were guided through a model of how to develop a longitudinal assessment tool and then guided through how to use that tool to assess major programs, student progress, and make evidence-driven changes to curricula to improve student learning. This work was part of the CUR Transformations Project (NSF-DUE 1625354).
