Ongoing Drop-In Help Labs

Seek guidance on:

  • SLOs -- refining them, assessing them, analyzing data, considering course or program improvements, and reporting those both in the Aug 31/Jan 31 reports as well as in the annual program review documents. 
  • Program Review -- Linking SLOs to program impacts, resource requests, and improvements
  • Course Outlines -- Updating them to ensure currency, and getting them through the Curriculum Committee
  • Department/Program web pages -- Updating them to ensure currency and making them usable by your faculty, staff, and students
