USF LIS Professor and Chair of the ALA Committee on Accreditation Dr. Vicki Gregory talks about student learning outcomes in the From the COA Chair: Perspective section of the ALA Prism: the Office for Accreditation newsletter, Fall 2010, volume 18, number 2.

Dr. Gregory says that,

“From the COA perspective, student learning outcomes contribute to the success of students and the program by:

  • Assisting LIS colleges, schools and departments in understanding how to better facilitate student learning;

  • Enabling students and graduates to articulate what they are learning or have learned from the program.”
