The Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) is pleased to announce, after a national search, we have named Edward Morgan Ph.D. as the Associate Director for Learning Assessment. Dr. Morgan comes to CELT from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth where he served as Director of Assessment for the University.
Ed will focus on working with Tufts faculty members on the assessment of learning by developing an Institute for Learning Assessment as well as providing consultation and support to faculty members across all campuses. For his entire career, Ed has studied student outcome experiences in college and focused on increasing student learning.
Ed received his Ph.D. in Higher Education from the University of Arizona and has worked in both teaching focused and research intensive institutions. His recent research and presentations include an inquiry project to search for measures of student achievement during active learning experiences (International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning), and explorations of ways to engage students in assessing learning (New England Educational Assessment Network). Ed currently serves as Secretary for the Board of the New England Educational Assessment Network (NEEAN).
We greatly look forward to Dr. Morgan’s leadership and expertise in collaborating across our university community in support of academic excellence at Tufts.
