Welcome to Resources for Student Learning!
The resources here are designed to promote optimum student learning and development at NTU through planning, assessment, and reporting processes based on Diné Philosophy of Education, accreditation criteria, and best practices.

Daniel McLaughlin
Student Learning Coordinator


Resources for COVID-19 Disruptions

With the spread of COVID-19, NTU has moved classes online. Below, courtesy of the Tribal College Journal, you will find an annotated bibliography on best practices for teaching online. Thanks to TCJ's Editor, Brad Shreve!


Another important resource is from Moodle – NTU's online Learning Management System. Check out "Learn Moodle Basics" at: https://learn.moodle.org/


Program Assessment
Assessment is the process of establishing learning goals, providing learning opportunities, assessing student learning, and using results to implement improvements. The process is ongoing. It follows the logic of the Life Principles of Diné Philosophy of Education: Nitsáhákees (critical thinking), Nahat’á (planning), Iiná (implementation), and Sih Hasin (reflection). This takes place for every certificate and degree program.

General Education
General Education is the foundation for all degree and certificate programs. It provides students with knowledge, skills, attributes, and values needed to learn actively, communicate clearly, think critically, creatively, and reflectively, and to interact effectively in diverse environments. General Education helps students become independent, critical thinkers, competent in their chosen professions by possessing a solid foundation in math, English, laboratory, social and behavioral sciences, communication, and information technology.


Program Revisions
NTU's GenEd program is undergoing revision. Faculty are aligning the program to new requirements of the New Mexico Higher Education Department.


General Education Program Assessment Plan 2019-20
Assessment of the GenEd program will take place one goal/semester at a time. Data summaries of direct and indirect measures as outlined above will be compiled on an annual basis by the University's Offices of Assessment and Institutional Research. An annual summary that includes recommendations for program improvement will be prepared by the Student Learning Committee and included in the University's Annual Student Learning Report. Curriculum revisions as needed will be designed by the General Education Committee and reviewed and approved by the Faculty Congress.

Co-curricular Programming and Assessment 2020
The goal of Co-Curricular Student Learning and Development at NTU is to provide value to Diné communities through research, community engagement, and service learning projects, and projects that foster cultural preservation, environmental sustainability, and economic development.

Co-Curricular activities are organized by faculty members as course assignments for course credit, and by faculty sponsors in student organizations. Projects require at least ten hours of out-of-class participation and are assessed through a reflective essay or survey.

Students who complete an end-of-project survey do so using an online instrument. Data are organized by the Student Learning Coordinator. Copies of students’ reflective essays are submitted to the Student Learning Coordinator for program improvement analysis. The CCP is overseen and improved annually by NTU’s Student Learning Committee.
