Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will lead a lively discussion on the role of assessments at today’s colleges and universities.

This webcast will explore the ways colleges are conducting assessments and pushing for better results. Participants will learn best practices for assessing their students and will get the chance to share their own knowledge and experiences.

The biggest challenge facing higher education is how to respond to the rapidly evolving expectations of today’s students. Delivering on a new higher education value equation starts with creating the conditions for students to not only thrive but to receive and perceive meaningful value from the learning experience itself. 

Join best-selling author Jeff Selingo, Top Hat’s VP of Product Marketing, Nina Bilimoria Angelo, and a panel of college leaders as we explore the hierarchy of student needs and how this framework can be used to address the issues of equity and access, belonging, engagement and, ultimately, student value.
