In late Feb, a group of colleagues attended an international conference on General Education and Assessment: Disruptions, Innovations, and Opportunities in Oregon, which was organized by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). During the 3 days, participants discussed how emerging disruptions in higher education are leading to positive opportunities for innovation in GE and assessment to improve the undergraduate experience for all students.
