Established in 2008, the mission of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) is to discover and disseminate ways that academic programs and institutions can productively use assessment data internally to inform and strengthen undergraduate education, and externally to communicate with policy makers, families and other stakeholders. NILOA assists institutions and others in discovering and adopting promising practices in the assessment of college student learning outcomes. Documenting what students learn, know and can do is of growing interest to colleges and universities, accrediting groups, higher education associations, foundations and others beyond campus, including students, their families, employers, and policy makers.

Inquiry in Curriculum Design   http://www.sfsu.edu/~teachers/download/Inquiryframework.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
Inquiry in Curriculum Design (October 5, 1999 revision) Inquiry is an activity we engage in every day. We ask questions of ourselves and others in our quest for understanding. In our own inquiries we seek understanding by engaging in daily activities, working on projects, or performing tasks. These are some of the ways we are constantly learning. In curriculum design, teachers can make use of the many forms of inquiry to promote understanding for our students. What questions really engage students? What questions will help frame a course of study? What questions do students want to explore? What content is worth learning? We use the word inquiry when discussing curriculum design to make a slight distinction from other forms of instructional planning. We wish to simply emphasize the importance of questions in the design of learning. When questions are used strategically, they help frame ideas, lead to new ideas, and promote learning.

Flanders Interaction Analysis Technique The teaching-learning situations in the class-room involve interaction between the teacher and the students.

Thus a systematic or objective analysis of the teacher’s classroom interaction may provide a reliable assessment of what goes on inside the class-room in terms of teaching and learning.

The Inter-American Research and Documentation Centre on Vocational Training    http://www.ilo.org/public/english/region/ampro/cinterfor/about/index.htm  Site Reviews(0)
The Inter-American Research and Documentation Centre on Vocational Training (CINTERFOR) originated from the Seventh Conference of American ILO Member States, held in Buenos Aires in 1961, in response to a proposal made to the ILO to establish a centre for the exchange of experiences, based on research, documentation and dissemination of vocational training activities and that will act as a core system constituted by vocational training institutions and organizations of ILO Member States in America and Spain. In the early sixties, most American countries faced the need to increase the general level of their manpower training in order to improve the quantity and quality of the enterprises' performance and the workers' living conditions. Given this situation, many countries (Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay, among others) began, with technical assistance from the ILO, actions aimed at the creation of new vocational training services, based on a tight collaboration with workers and employers, and dedicated to the training of apprentices and adult workers. The organization of these services, the preparation and publication of training programs, the preparation of education personnel and the study of necessary installations and equipment represented a great effort in research and a good deal of adaptation among each of these countries. Consequently they considered it highly desirable that the national services committed in this effort used the accumulated experience of other countries and participate in a necessary coordination of activities to be developed in America. Facing this situation and considering the general resolution concerning vocational training adopted in the Seventh Conference held in Buenos Aires, it was decided on that occasion to recommend to the ILO the creation of an Inter-American Research and Documentation Centre on Vocational Training, which would promote a permanent cooperation between national units in charge of vocational training. As part of this recommendation, it was pointed out that the Centre should have as its main duties the gathering of all documentation related to vocational training aspects and, to that effect, the establishment of necessary contacts with all specialized organizations; disseminate this documentation in an appropriate way among interested national organizations; implement, at the organizations' request, all kind of research related to the general and technical organization of vocational training; prepare didactic training material, according to the needs or requests of interested entities. Then, in 1963 CINTERFOR was created by the International Labour Organization (ILO), with headquarters in Montevideo.

Paraphrase: Write it in Your Own Words   http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/619/01/  Site Reviews(0)
Learn to borrow from a source without plagiarizing. For more information on paraphrasing, as well as other ways to integrate sources into your paper, see the Purdue OWL handout Quoting Paraphrasing, and Summarizing. For more information about writing research papers, see our resource on this subject. Purdue students will want to make sure that they are familiar with Purdue's official academic dishonesty policy as well as any additional policies that their instructor has implemented. Another good resource for understanding plagiarism is the Statement on Plagiarism from the Council of Writing Program Administrators. A paraphrase is... * your own rendition of essential information and ideas expressed by someone else, presented in a new form. * one legitimate way (when accompanied by accurate documentation) to borrow from a source. * a more detailed restatement than a summary, which focuses concisely on a single main idea. Paraphrasing is a valuable skill because... * it is better than quoting information from an undistinguished passage. * it helps you control the temptation to quote too much. * the mental process required for successful paraphrasing helps you to grasp the full meaning of the original.
