Assurance of Learning | Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics

Assurance of Learning

As part of the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics' commitment to continuous program improvement, an Assurance of Learning (AoL) system is currently in development to ensure that feedback and information on student learning is being collected in a robust and meaningful way. Lang is committed to delivering high quality business programming, and an AoL system provides a solid framework with which to make evidence-based decisions about changes to our curriculum. Updates and data from the system will be posted here, as they become available.

Currently, there is an AoL committee, with representatives from across the School, that are working on finalizing a system. If you have any questions about this process, or if you would like to be involved, please contact Jackie Hamilton, Senior Manager, Learning, Assessment, Accreditation
