NSSE User Workshops
Since 2000, in collaboration with institutional representatives, NSSE has sponsored workshops where more than 700 NSSE users, faculty, administrators, institutional researchers have come together to better use and understand their NSSE data. Hosting a workshop offers institutions the opportunity to energize or showcase their use of NSSE results, exchange ideas with a wide audience of NSSE users, and also focus attention on student engagement and assessment to campus audiences through the coordination of parallel sessions targeted to their own faculty and staff.
NSSE co-sponsors* Teaching and Learning National Institute to be held at The Evergreen State College, July 31–August 3, 2016
This institute will guide campus teams in planning data-informed change initiatives that can improve the quality of students' experiences-leading to increases in student engagement, retention and graduation, and learning outcomes. Participating campus teams of at least three faculty, an academic administrator, and at least one other person will work directly with experienced educators from across the country to develop evidence-based action plans. This residential institute will include plenaries, concurrent sessions, team time, and small- and large-group sessions.
*Co-sponsored with Achieving the Dream, Inc. (AtD), National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA), Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education, and Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (WSBCTC).

System and Consortia Workshops
Customized workshops can be developed for systems and consortia. NSSE staff members work with systems and individual institutions to offer institution-based, regional, system and consortium in-person and Web-based workshops. Topics include using NSSE data for assessment, strategies for system data dissemination and sharing, and using NSSE for accreditation and system-wide quality improvement plans.
Is your institution interested in hosting
a NSSE User Workshop?
The planning models for past workshops have been very flexible and were negotiated according to the needs, resources, and facilities of the host institution. Basically, NSSE staff handles preconference planning, organizes and defines the team work schedule, markets the workshop, and maintains registration lists. The host institution arranges facilities and set up. If desired, NSSE staff collaborates with the host to develop customized sessions to address the institution's student engagement and assessment interests.
Please contact NSSE, email@example.com, for more information on host responsibilities and benefits.
