Lean Six Sigma and Assurance of Learning: Challenges and Opportunities
Rexeisen, Richard J.; Owens, Ernest L., Jr.; Garrison, Michael J.
Journal of Education for Business, v93 n5 p260-266 2018
The importance, and associated challenges, of faculty ownership and engagement in the assurance of learning (AoL) process are well documented in the literature. The authors demonstrate how schools can further their AoL objectives by encouraging and subsequently supporting organic, faculty-led initiatives. Specifically, we present a case study of a faculty led initiative to explore and demonstrate, as a proof of concept, how Lean Six Sigma can be used to improve AoL practices.
