Aligning Course Design and Assessment - Techniques that Work
Aligning course activities and desired outcomes with assessment of student performance is a difficult task. How can an instructor really know if students have met course objectives or have achieved content area competencies if tests and quizzes are not the main means of assessment? This presentation will explore concepts of course design and assessment with the goal of linking the two. The emphasis is on the use of authentic assessments that really measure achievement and learning

Creating Standards without Borders: Online Learning Meets Governmental Regulation
State and federal authorization regulations will significantly impact distance education and online learning. The goals of this session are to:
- Review the recent regulatory and oversight interest from many quarters, and the impact upon national goals to enhance access and capacity for degree production.
- Examine regulatory barriers (state and federal) to quality online learning and their effect on the changing structure and capacity of higher education.
- Summarize the work of the Presidents’ Forum and Council of State Governments Multi-State Reciprocity in Postsecondary Approval and Regulation project and explore the potential of a voluntary, interstate reciprocity agreement (compact) to simultaneously streamline the approval processes for institutions that seek to offer degree programs across political boundaries, while enabling states to operate essential regulatory functions with greater consistency and efficiency.
