Registration is now open for the 2017 NCHC Program Reviewer Training! Led by Dr. Greg Lanier and Dr. Richard Badenhausen, this 2017 institute will train NCHC members to become NCHC recommended Program Reviewers.  The Institute will present training in and discussion of the many steps associated with a program review, so individuals who desire to become program reviewers will become familiar with the process.  The institute will also be valuable for members who may be expecting to participate in a program review at their own campuses.

Participants will become familiar with all phases of the evaluation process, including goal-setting for the review, putting together an on-campus schedule, identifying appropriate supporting documents, conducting interviews, and writing the report. The Institute will examine informal means of assessment to formal mechanisms of evaluating the impact of Honors education.  The training module will feature small group exercises and additional opportunities for networking.  All participants will gain valuable experience in how to build a self-study and how to assess the overall effectiveness of Honors education.
