ACRL e-Learning: Project Outcome for Academic Libraries

July 01, 2020

Join ACRL on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 for the e-Learning webcast Project Outcome for Academic Libraries: An Introductory Workshop. This interactive session will be held from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM (Eastern) | 1:00 PM-3:00 PM (Central) | 12:00 PM-2:00 PM (Mountain) | 11:00 AM-1:00 PM (Pacific).


If you are interested in measuring learning outcomes to drive change, making data-informed decisions, and demonstrating the impact of programs and services at your library, then jump-start your fall semester planning with this interactive virtual workshop. Attendees will learn how to get started with the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries toolkit.  


Project Outcome is a free toolkit that helps libraries measure four key learning outcomes – knowledge, confidence, application, and awareness – across seven library program and service areas via participant surveys. The survey topics cover: Instruction, Events/Programs, Research, Teaching Support, Digital & Special Collections, Space, and Library Technology. Project Outcome provides academic libraries of any size the means to easily measure outcomes in those areas and to use that data as the basis for continuous improvements and advocacy.


Learning Outcomes

  • Measure meaningful learning outcomes using Project Outcome for Academic Libraries.

  • Use the Project Outcome toolkit to administer surveys, analyze results, and create reports.

  • Understand how other libraries have used outcome data for action.

  • Develop a simple plan to implement Project Outcome at your library.


Presenter: Sara Goek is Program Manager at ACRL where she contributes to efforts to improve research about academic library contributions to student learning and success. She has served as staff lead on the development of Project Outcome for Academic Libraries since fall 2017.
