About the Webinar:

External program reviews for academic programs are becoming common as a means for assessing programs and providing feedback for improvement at the curricular and administrative levels.

Each program review is an opportunity for the department and institution to take a comprehensive look at a program in order to evaluate strengths and weaknesses, and to consider its future. Setting up these reviews can be a time consuming process and the difficulties and costs can get in the way of a successful and useful outcome.

This webinar will describe models for both internal and external program reviews, as well as tips for managing the process and obstacles to avoid.
