Structured Conversations

In an effort to provide ongoing professional development opportunities for SAAL members, the Professional Development Committee hosts Structured Conversations. Structured Conversations are monthly interactive assessment webinars. A listing of upcoming webinars and past records can be found below. Check the professional development calendar for a full listing of events. 

Call for Presentations

SAAL Structured Conversations are designed with you in mind. Recognizing the expertise of our colleagues in Student Affairs assessment, we are issuing a call for presentations to share your expertise, perspectives, and best practices in student affairs assessment.  

Ready to submit a proposal? Please fill out the form below. SAAL typically hosts one Structured Conversation per month and we accept submissions on a rolling basis. The SAAL Professional Development Committee will coordinate all the logistics for the session including technical support and promotion.
