Assessment Boot Camp:

A resource for people who (think they) hate assessment

The BEA 2023 Assessment Boot Camp is going to be the beginning of an expansion of its reach and use. We will be creating an online repository with assessment ideas that anyone can use for their own department’s assessment activities.

JOBEM Special Issue Call: Communication Theory in the Era of Media Balkanization

As the cost to produce and distribute media content has dramatically reduced, the ability to share content has dramatically expanded. Every person is a potential media producer; anyone can be a broadcaster. However, while broad casting has never been more possible, broad receiving has never been more elusive. “Hit” shows are still only watched by 1-2% of the population; units of virality are often measured in the thousands, not millions.
