Kimberly Kline, associate professor of higher education administration, will share her research "Facilitating Student Learning and Developmental Outcomes Assessment: Exploring Grass Roots Research Efforts and Collaborative Dialogue through a Social Justice Lense."
Kline's talk uses socially constructed dialogues around issues of student learning and developmental outcomes within higher education environments. For her Fulbright Grant, she worked with the National University of Kyiv Mohyla Academy to examine participatory approaches to building assessment plans that are learner-centered and informative to faculty and staff on college campuses. Dr. Kline will explain similarities and differences between student activism in the United States and student activism in a post-soviet country. She will also describe modern day education reform and the role that we may be able to play in helping Ukraine achieve educational freedom and autonomy, particularly in postsecondary settings.
