This roundtable discussion will engage participants in a case study analysis of two liberal arts institutions where the faculty governance committee responsibly for student outcomes assessment and disciplinary program review has effectively worked with the Provost and the Director of Academic Assessment to dramatically improve the policies, procedures, and practices of continuously improving pedagogy and curricula. Participants will be guided through discussions and exercises to consider how they can bring "lessons learned" back to their respective campuses to improve shared governance and, consequently, their teaching and learning process.
