Webinar: Rethink Assessment With Canvas + Portfolium


Attend this session to learn how Point Loma Nazarene migrated their program assessment process to enhance its student-centered approach in using outcomes to inform curricular improvements. This involves creating a win-win situation for both the institution by simplifying their data collection for WSCUC (WASC) accreditation efforts, and the students by building out an ePortfolio of evidence of their learning to help them in their careers.




Agenda (or Objectives)

  • Why it was important for the institution to take a more student-centered approach
  • The collaborative decision-making process used to facilitate adoption, migrate data, and expand Portfolium at Point Loma Nazarene University
  • How the initiative generated buy-in from multiple stakeholders to set it up for success
  • The value of connecting course and program level learning outcome assessment
  • The perspective of students in the B.A. in Organizational Management program and how they are displaying signature assignments in Portfolium
