WACE runs a Global Institute on Experiential Education where teams from colleges and universities attend to design strategic plans to either increase and enhance an existing CWIE program or to develop a new CWIE program. The most common concern voiced by the colleges and universities in attendance is how to assess the learning outcomes of their CWIE program.
The WACE Assessment Institute is designed to allow the participants the opportunity to work with experienced higher education professionals who have or are tackling the many issues connected to the assessment of the learning outcomes of CWIE programs. The ultimate goal is for the participants to leave the Institute with a strategy of how to move the assessment process forward within their respective programs and campuses. The Institute will also help the colleges and universities in attendance to address the increasing interest from students, parents, government agencies and accrediting bodies concerning the learning that occurs within their CWIE programs.
