Workshop on Assessment and Student Learning
Project Management Domain
January 14, 2011
Marty Hornyak and Blaine Lawlor (Management and MIS) discussed assessment and instructional strategies used in the College of Business to improve student learning in the domain of project management. Britt McGowan (Pace Library) discussed instructional strategies and assignments that will develop student skills in information literacy components that are related to project management skills.
Incorporating information literacy “checkpoints” throughout the research assignment helps promote project management skills by helping students understand the time it takes to conduct proper research. For example, in addition to a research paper deadline, you may also assign a deadline for finding a suitable topic, conducting background research, compiling an annotated bibliography or literature review, evaluating sources, and reflecting on the initial research question.
The following outcomes in the ACRL Information Literacy Standards relate specifically to project management:
Information Literacy Assignments & Resources that promote project management skills:

AAC&U VALUE Rubrics
AAC&U has developed rubrics for project management and information literacy. These learning outcomes are frequently included as program learning outcomes for General Education and undergraduate programs.
You may download a copy of these rubrics from the AAC&U website.
AAC&U will ask you to enter an email address and complete a brief questionnaire before accessing the rubrics site.
