About KU Student Learning Symposium

Presented by the Office of the Provost and the Center for Teaching Excellence, the Student Learning Symposium is an annual event that brings together faculty, administrators, and staff to explore and use assessment results collected from multiple sources -- including KU Core review and degree-level assessment -- to illuminate what is going on in KU's classrooms and beyond.

The half-day program offers panel and discussion sessions about the study of student learning; several presentations from individual departments that serve as examples of best practices; a general plenary session that addresses a large, macro-level question through the presentation of institutional data; and lots of fun in the form of food, hands-on activities, and the bestowal of university-level assessment awards.

Notes from each year's SLS appear in the menu to the left and the tentative agenda for the upcoming SLS will be posted here early each Spring term.
