Unpacking Relationships: Instruction and Student Outcomes

January 24, 2017

​Authored by Natasha Jankowski of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment and Research Assistant Professor with the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

ACE commissioned this white paper as part of the Council’s collaboration with Strada Education Network to examine higher education instruction and assess the connections between quality teaching and student success. The paper provides insight into five areas of intersection between instruction and student outcomes including transparency, pedagogical approaches, assessment, self-regulation, and alignment. The paper concludes that for students to succeed, they must be engaged in stimulating and effective learning environments. But for that to happen, “faculty need to help students make connections between various learning experiences and the end goals of higher education by supporting student-centered learning environments.”​
