Content from the MSCHE Web Site

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) has some "good finds" on its web site. I recommend the Events menu tab.

User-friendly calendar of MSCHE workshops and conferences with valuable cues of Open to the Public and By Invitation Only clearly marked. In this calendar, it's the red text (not the blue) that serves as hyperlinking to detail pages. Events for the remainder of 2009 are listed with sites in New York, Delaware, Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania (Philadelphia being the most common location).

Presentation Materials
Like most organization web sites today, past conferences are featured with presentation displays available for download. While the brief text of a PPT slideshow may not satisfy, some gems are also present. In the re-cap of the MSCHE 2008 annual meeting, this is one: Ephraim Schechter's presentation on Planning General Education Assessment [PDF]. Skip to the mid-way point of the PDF file for a set of hyperlinks to examples from institutions across the country. They comprise the evidence for Schechter's assertions, and are labeled according to the PPT slide numbers. Schechter's research is genuinely helpful in keeping up with trends in the U.S.
