Emphasizing the Dialog atMonterey Peninsula College

  • Fred Hochstaedter

  • Academic Senate President

  • SLO Coordinator

  • Monterey Peninsula College

What we do,

What we emphasize,

And why


Our Philosophy

  • We hope that SLOs can provide a formal framework for faculty to converse, as professionals, about teaching, learning, pedagogy, and curricula.

  • Professional teachers talking to each other about teaching and student learning is a primary characteristic of a vibrant academic institution.

  • We hope that the result of these conversations is more insightful pedagogy that improves student learning in MPC courses.

    -MPC SLO Committee, 2007


What We Wanted

  • A process that is simple (Keep it Simple Sweetheart)

  • A process that is sustainable in a variety of budget environments

  • A process that fit with our existing processes such as resource allocation

Led to Three Principles…


Three Principles

  • All SLOs (program, institutional, general education) must be evaluable at the course level.

Three Principles

SLOs:

Information for the Program

Grades:

Information for the Student

Leads to…

Evaluation of student work

  • 2. Instructors regularly evaluate student learning. The result of this effort is valuable information for quality improvement for the program.

Three Principles

  • 3. We need to give faculty members time to engage in the dialog.

  • At MPC, the Program Reflections are

  • The heart of dialog during flex activities

  • Cited as rational for action plans

  • Well integrated into the Program Review Process

  • Well integrated into all resource allocation processes

  • Viewed as the basis for dialog

  • Visited at least once per semester

  • and most importantly…


At MPC, the Program Reflections are

A grass-roots, bottom-up, approach

to evaluating student learning

and using the results to inform plans to improve.

From the ACCJC

  • The primary purpose of an ACCJC-accredited institution is to foster learning in its students.

  • An effective institution ensures that its resources and processes support student learning, continuously assesses that learning, and pursues institutional excellence and improvement.

  • An effective institution maintains an ongoing, self-reflective dialogue about its quality and improvement.”
