Congratulations! Experts’ Choice Winner for STEM Alliances; IN LSAMP @BSU!

Dr. Patti Lang, Co-PI and Campus Director of the Indiana STEM LSAMP (IN LSAMP) at Ball State University (BSU), won one of the Experts’ Choice Awards for her video entry, Scientific Journal or Graphic Novel? A Student-Production Featuring LSAMP Research!

The video looked at how IN LSAMP students at BSU collaborated with graphic art management students to showcase their research in a novel fashion. The project was funded by IN STEM LSAMP, NSF-HRD, 1618-408 and Ball State University Sponsored Projects Administration. View online:

The product of the partnership between the two Ball State student groups, their faculty advisors, and the Ball State video production team, broke the traditional confines of a scholarly journal and yielded a 133-page explanation of the students’ research, their biographies, and a description of the Indiana LSAMP program—not to mention a plot, a team of superheroes called The Elements, a villain named Dr. Hazard, and a dramatic ending! 

Congratulations to the #TAGA students and @PattiMurphyLang on creating a video that inspires other LSAMP leaders to connect with a creative view of broadening participation!

Assessment Institute in Indianapolis

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is the nation's oldest and largest event focused exclusively on outcomes assessment in higher education. We anticipate that some 1000 educators from virtually every state and several other countries will take part in the 2018 Institute.

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is designed to provide opportunities for (1) individuals and campus teams new to outcomes assessment to acquire fundamental knowledge about the field, (2) individuals who have worked as leaders in outcomes assessment to share and extend their knowledge and skills, and (3) those interested in outcomes assessment at any level to establish networks that serve as sources of support and expertise beyond the dates of the Institute.
