Assessment Podcasts by the Teagle Foundation

The Teagle Foundation podcasts are 20-minute clips on the web on assessment topics, most from 2007. If you share assessment articles with folks on campus, the podcasts offer a different approach to catch their interest. Some speakers and their topics:

Richard Hersh on the CLA
Judith Eaton on the state of accreditation (perspective of CHEA)
Andrew Delbanco on the future of American UG education

And presenting what may be the most unusual story-telling about campus assessment, a Teagle web page is devoted to 6 episodes of The Amazing Adventures of Indigo Jones, Classical Archaeologist! (The exclamation mark is part of the title. Although it also suits my description as the most unusual....)

Teagle Foundation Grantees are described briefly on the web site, along with dozens of publications and resources. The philanthropic organization was founded in 1944 by Teagle of Standard Oil (now Exxon). Funding continues by his family.
