Published on

Developing a residential education curriculum requires not just a change in process and procedure, but also a cultural and philosophical change in the way our approach to our work. To that end, the presenters will share a Residential Curriculum assessment guides they and others developed to aid departments in continuous improvement. This session will introduce the curriculum and guides, allow participants to practice applying the tools, and discuss methods for implementing it in practice.
Originally presented at the 2018 NASPA-Student Affairs Professionals in Higher Education Conference in Philadelphia, PA.

  17. Programming Model Residential Curriculum Programming is the main method of educational delivery Educational delivery can involve multiple strategies beyond the program Student staff members lead in developing programs and their content Professional staff members develop a detailed learning plan for student staff members to follow Often involves categories that can be widely interpreted Learning goal areas replace categories and are more narrowly defined Learning outcomes are set by student staff members Learning outcomes are defined by professional staff members Differences in Underlying Logic Between Approaches to Residential Student Learning @PaulGordonBrown
