Upcoming Webinar: RARE Model: Interpersonal Strategies for Inclusive and Collaborative Assessment Practice

Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at 12:30am PST / 2:30pm CST / 3:30pm EST 

Description

In fostering a positive assessment culture on campus, assessment professionals must develop and sustain collaborative relationships with faculty and staff. Building alliances across the institution and facilitating ownership and autonomy in assessment requires a toolkit of interpersonal strategies. The presenters recently co-developed the RARE Model, a strengths-based approach to assessment practice, which emphasizes relationship-building as foundational for success (Clucas Leaderman & Polychronopoulos, 2019). In this session, the presenters will explain the RARE Model in depth, including specific strategies for inclusive practice, and discuss how these strategies may be employed intentionally with faculty and staff to promote positive assessment culture and collaboration. Assessment practitioners will benefit from learning and reflecting upon several adaptability skills that are necessary for effectively partnering with campus stakeholders to support best practices in assessment.

Presenters

Gina B. Polychronopoulos, Ph.D.
Assistant Director of Assessment, Christopher Newport University

Emilie Clucas Leaderman, Ed.D.
Assistant Director of Assessment, Santa Clara University
