The purpose of this course is to teach the concepts, principles, and requirements associated with Assurance of Learning (AoL) to higher education officials seeking initial or reaffirmation of accreditation. The course also applies to those quality assurance managers in higher education desirous of additional information about AoL for continuous quality improvement. The course will help faculty, quality assurance managers, academic program managers, and senior higher education officials understand and apply assurance of learning within their institution.  

The many versions of AoL say the same thing: provide evidence that you are doing what you say you are doing with respect to the goals, objectives, and outcomes that you have for the learner’s educational experience.

Although AoL is a focus of accreditation, AoL helps ensure that all stakeholders, including learners, are receiving a high-quality education. AoL is outcomes focused – student learning and capability. AoL also helps ensure competitiveness in tightening education markets.
