Valencia College invites colleagues responsible for learning assessment, faculty development, student development, curriculum, institutional effectiveness and regional and program-specific accreditation to Orlando February 22-24, 2015, to learn about effectively meeting the learning assessment needs and challenges faced by faculty, staff and administrators in community and technical colleges.

This conference will focus on community college and technical college employees with responsibility for learning assessment, faculty development, student development, curriculum, institutional effectiveness, regional and program-specific accreditation including:
- Teaching faculty
- College Presidents
- Institutional research, effectiveness and assessment staff
- Academic affairs administrators and staff
- Student affairs administrators and staff
The conference will include an emphasis on the necessary relationship between faculty/professional development and learning assessment; the relationship between curricular design and learning assessment; learning assessment in the online environment; issues associated with collection and use of data from learning assessment; and the demands of regional accreditation including the possibility of doing assessment in a way that allows for meaningful dialogue while providing documentation for accountability and accreditation.
The design of the conference, as well as pre- and post-conference activities is intended to encourage institutional teams to register for the conference with the expectation that they will leave the conference with a refined focus and purpose for learning assessment at their institution.
