Current or aspiring associate directors and directors must focus on developing systems to give continuous feedback beyond the normal channels of information such as comment cards, participant evaluations, and professional staff assessments. An outside eye can help accurately gauge program effectiveness and the impact on student satisfaction. We will cover best practices in monitoring program design and implementation and give attendees the tools to start their own “Watchtower”? program!

Learning Objectives

  • Become familiar with three best practices for designing a monitoring program for your campus.
  • Examine three monitoring program implementation practices.
