There were also informational sessions on signature assignments, strengthening education through core-infused pathways, assessment of Texas core objectives with VALUE rubrics and general education assessment practices.

There was also a session on pursuing reaffirmation of accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges under the new Texas Core Curriculum.

Attending the forum were: Biology Chair Dwight Rhodes, Psychology instructor Traci Phillips, Math instructor Dr. James Boler, English instructor Haley Collins, Dean of Academic Programs Dr. Nadia Nazarenko, interim Dean of Arts and Sciences John Matula and Vice President of Instruction Dr. Cindy Griffith.
