Dr. Tara Rose appointed to serve one-year as a Senior Fellow at the American Association for Colleges and Universities
Dr. Tara Rose appointed to serve one-year as a Senior Fellow within the Office of Quality, Curriculum, and Assessment at the American Association for Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). Rose, who currently serves as LSU’s Director of Assessment in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, was influential in helping to develop and test a new system-level approach to assessing student learning using the AAC&U Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) Rubrics via the Multi-State Collaborative to Advance Learning Outcomes Assessment (MSC) initiative. Since 2013 she continues to be a strong advocate for the use of the VALUE Rubrics and contributes to state and national policy discussions on the importance of assessing authentic student work as a way to measure student learning achievement. As Senior Fellow, she will serve as an expert peer and mentor to colleagues at colleges and universities participating in the VALUE Institute and collaborate with AAC&U staff on analyzing subsets of VALUE related data. Dr. Rose’s appointment will move LSU forward as we implement the Integrative Learning Core (ILC), an enhanced general education program launched this past February. In addition to adhering to the Louisiana Board of Regents areas for general education, the ILC is proficiency based and aligned to AAC&U’s essential learning outcomes and VALUE rubrics. Dr. Rose will work with faculty over the next two years as they transition their courses to the ILC which will be fully implemented in August of 2022.
