Fostering a Sustainable Culture of Assessment

Tuesday, February 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This is part 4 of the Core Forum Webinar Series on Leadership & Management, a four-part webinar series that highlights a variety of topics including diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), strategies for addressing certain staff issues, peer mentoring and mid-career development, and how to establish a culture of sustainable assessment. Originally part of the cancelled Core Forum, the presentations are geared toward library workers in leadership and management positions. Core members and non-members are welcome to attend.

Description: Establishing a culture of assessment means embedding an assessment component into every library operation. This process is crucial for providing responsive, high-quality library services. This presentation will share our journey crafting and deploying an assessment framework across library initiatives during the global pandemic. We will highlight a few examples to show how the process helped us create adapted services and make timely adjustments on to decisions throughout the pandemic period. We will address how we responded to resistance, generated buy-in, and empowered library staff to act using the framework to establish a sustainable culture of assessment.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of this webinar, attendees will:

  • gain solid understanding the operational definition and purpose of “a culture of sustainable assessment”;
  • understand a conceptual model for an assessment framework; and
  • be able to adapt the principles, practices, and methodologies for building a feasible assessment framework.

CALL SPONSORED: In order to gain the most impact from learning events sponsored by the CALL grant, we ask that all participants engage fully (attend, participate, discuss and share). If you are unable or not willing to agree to this, please be kind and leave a seat or place for someone else.
