The Winona State University Athenaeum Series will host “Assessment in the History Department: Outcomes for History Majors and GEPS Students” at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 13, on the second floor of the Darrell W. Krueger Library.
Associate Professors Matthew Lungerhausen and Matt Lindaman from WSU’s History Department, and Associate Professor Michelle Kuhl from the History Department at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh will discuss the methods used by WSU’s history department to assess student learning among majors and General Education (GEPS) students. Lungerhausen will address the main focus of the department’s assessment for majors, the senior thesis project. Lindaman and Kuhl will discuss use of Document Based Questions to assess historical thinking skills in GEPS students from Lindaman’s Western Civilization classes.
All WSU Athenaeum Series events are free and open to the public.
The Athenaeum hosts events that explore and enhance the intellectual life of the University and the region through lectures, readings, performances, discussions and other events. By bringing together scholars, performers, students and community members for intellectual discussion and the sharing of cultural experiences, the Athenaeum reflects the importance the University places on the humanities, the arts and the sciences.
