Twitter Chats


Join your AALHE colleagues as we discuss and debate important, controversial,  and potentially provocative topics. Each Twitter Chat has at least one facilitator who stimulates discussion and sometimes plays the devil’s advocate. In these topical chats, members and others discuss difficult issues in 140 characters or less. Lurk or fully participate in these fascinating discussions!

      • Provide an example of a time where standardization worked in practice at your institution.
      • Have you seen misalignment in assessment endeavors? Give an example.
      • How can efforts to standardize aspects of assessment benefit students and improve student outcomes in higher education?
      • How can efforts to standardize aspects of assessment benefit faculty and improve their involvement in assessment?
      • Does using the phase misalignment change your thoughts on standardization?
      • Many times we try to not use the word assessment because of negative associations. Given this, what word(s) should we use with faculty?
