Committee on Undergraduate Program Review (CUPR)

North Carolina State University
Undergraduate Academic Program Review (UAPR)
 Proposed Workshop Schedule
Moving Forward in Detail with Our Eyes Focused on the Prize
With Peggy Maki, Ph.D. 

Crooked Creek Golf Club
4621 Shady Greens Dr.
Fuquay-Varina, NC 27526

May 16-17, 2002  

The following proposal has been developed in detailed conversation with Peggy Maki and informed by the preliminary results of the One-Minute Surveys.  

The purpose of this workshop is to provide the Committee on Undergraduate Academic Program Review (CUPR) with the vocabulary and shared vision to engage in the next phase of UAPR at NC State - moving forward in detail with our eyes focused on the prize.  As you read through this proposed workshop schedule, please understand that it was designed to be flexible.  As a matter of fact, it may be helpful to think of the analogy that there are several ways to get to California from North Carolina.  In the early days of travel, someone had to be the first to forge the way.  There were no road maps and there were no road signs.  Travelers had to be flexible, yet reflective in their planning without losing their sense of direction, so as not to get caught in the Rocky Mountains in the dead of winter. (other metaphors like wondering in the wilderness also work here grin)  

What we are trying to do here is not provide you with the details of understanding specific assessment methods and analyzing assessment plans.  We will make time for you to practice your skills in those areas, but not during this workshop, as that is not the best use of Peggy's time.  We are fortunate that we have the expertise on this campus to learn assessment methods from our colleagues and we have plenty of assessment plans to practice on this summer and next year.  What we often don't have time for is reflection on where we are going.  We are, in fact, leading the nation in this endeavor and we take that responsibility, challenge, opportunity, and honor very seriously.   

Your feedback is needed in order to make this a meaningful experience.  Please review this schedule after having read the attached Maki article and reviewing the attached PowerPoint presentations.  Jon has scheduled time to discuss this proposed workshop schedule at the next CUPR meeting.  Thank you!
