Assessing Social Events: Student Programming by the Numbers
Duration: 1 hour
Facilitator: Dr. Charles Hueber
It can be very difficult to compare event attendance at a university with 30,000 students and a university with 3,000. This session will examine how we measure success in terms of student activities (social programming) and look at methods to help programmers set goals and standards in terms of programming that aligns with their school. It is not just about assessment and learning outcomes it’s about setting realistic standards for staff and students who produce events.
- Participants will have a better understanding of the meaningful methods to assess student activities programs in relation to institutional size.
- Participants will be introduced to an assessment model that has proven successful at three major universities.
- Participants will be given the tools to create and implement a similar model at their home institutions.
- Participants will examine the creation of learning outcomes for social programming in terms of both participants and producers of an event.
Who Should Attend:
- Residence Life Programmers
- Greek Life
- Student Activities Staff
