Program Review Workshop

Hawaii Pacific University–Hawaii Loa College Campus, Kaneohe

The first PacAIR sponsored workshop, held on May 9, 2008, at Hawaii Pacific University’s Hawaii Loa College Campus in Kaneohe, was a success. Nancy Hedlund of HPU coordinated the well attended meeting on Program Review. It was a historic gathering of the “public and privates” as almost 40 people from various private and public institutions on Oahu and the outer islands joined in to learn more on how learning assessment, program review and institutional research are connected.

The half day workshop began with continental breakfast and introductions. Nancy Hedlund presented “Sustaining a Culture of Evidence by Connecting Learning Assessment and Program Review with Institutional Research.” Representatives from HPU, BYUH and UH Manoa also shared how Learning Assessment and Program Review are connected with Institutional Research on their campuses. It was a full morning of sharing as attendees actively participated in discussion throughout the presentations.

Following the workshop, those who could make it had lunch together at Pah Ke’s Chinese Restaurant in Kaneohe.
