Reflect...on Best Practices.
Reflection--an integral component of Jesuit education--is fostered as AEA offers processes of inquiry, experimentation, and reflection with campus colleagues; engages faculty and staff in the assessment of student learning processes; and collects, reports and analyzes university-related data to provide comprehensive analysis and transparency of best practices, national rankings and strategic reporting.
Collaborate...with Campus Colleagues.
Collaboration and conversation create a community of life-long learners; AEA programs offer innovative, interprofessional and interdisciplinary engagement with faculty and staff in elevating dialogue on excellence in teaching and assessment of student learning. Annually, the AEA Development Grant Program provides "seed" money for work in its early stages relevant to assessment of student learning or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects.
"Creighton University exists for students and learning." Faculty and staff pursue an excellence in teaching and student learning that extends beyond the brick and mortar of our classroom into the communities in which we live, to include service learning. The comprehensive, faculty-led assessment of student learning process provides continual growth and development, among the individuals, departments, and schools / colleges.
