Aligning Assessment Across All University Levels
Unformatted Document Text:  Table 3: Global Studies Program Goals and Plans for Assessment Goal #1: Offering a major and minor curriculum that is up to date with developments in the field of Global Studies. Assessment: A sub-committee of Global Studies faculty will conduct biennial review of Global Studies curricula in the United States and abroad and evaluate the extent to which CSUSM’s program is following trends in the field. This evaluation will take the form of a written report to be submitted to the Global Studies Program Coordinator and the Global Studies Steering Committee. Goal #2: Creating a clear, up-to-date mission statement describing the nature and purpose of the program. Assessment: Following creation of this statement, yearly review of the statement by the Global Studies Steering Committee to ensure that the statement accurately reflects the status and curriculum of the program. Goal #3: Providing a wide variety of innovative and effective pedagogical techniques in Global Studies core courses and electives. Assessment: A sub-committee of Global Studies faculty will (1) conduct biennial review of GBST syllabi – core courses and the most frequently taken electives – to evaluate the variety of pedagogical techniques used in these courses; and (2) identify particularly effective pedagogical techniques and seek to recruit faculty practitioners to offer workshops for Global Studies faculty. Goal #4: Offering at least one section of GBST 100 and 300 each academic year. Assessment: Review of the course schedule for each academic year. Goal #5: Ensuring that an adequate number and variety of upper-division electives are offered each year by the various academic departments participating in the Global Studies program. Assessment: The Global Studies Program Coordinator will work with the chairs of the departments offering electives for the Global Studies minor and to ensure that enough upper-division electives are being offered in the course schedule. Given the large number of such electives and the fact that many of the GBST upper-division electives are also essential for other majors to complete their graduation requirements, this goal can be easily accomplished. Goal #6: Creation of a viable internship program. Assessment: Designate an internship coordinator by the Global Studies Steering Committee; submit an annual report on the number of community internship partners and the number of students using these partnerships to obtain internships. Goal #7: Promoting greater global awareness among the CSUSM campus community members through sponsorship of speakers, forums, and other activities dealing with global affairs. Assessment: Distribution and collection of evaluations to participants in Global Studies-sponsored events. Goal #8: A significant increase in the number of Global Studies minors and majors during the first five years of the major’s implementation. Assessment: The Global Studies Program Coordinator will monitor and analyze changes in declared Global Studies minors and majors annually. Aligning Assessment Across All Levels page 21 of 34
