Emerging Dialogues

The mission of Emerging Dialogues (ED) is to discuss current issues and ideas relevant to higher education assessment practitioners today. ED is a platform for articles focused on student learning assessment that are relevant to assessment practitioners.

New and experienced authors, professionals, graduate students, and others are encouraged to write about current emerging themes (dialogues, if you will) in assessment. The peer review process is supportive and iterative, especially for first-time submissions. Publications include formal and informal articles, such as:

  • Case studies
  • Formal responses to previously published pieces
  • Personal Narratives or Op-eds
  • Innovative Ideas or Challenges
  • Translation of conference presentations to publication format

  • it provides best practices shared by member institutions at the AALHE Conference,
  • it supports, documents, and affirms the contributions of the presenters.
