This paper reports the conceptual phase of the USF School of Library and Information Science’s participation in the Pew Trust Challenge Grant project “Innovations in Faculty Work Life,” administered by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The SLIS was selected as one of nine departments at USF to participate in a Pilot Study for Alternate Measures of Teaching Effectiveness, one of two foci in the USF Harvard Challenge Grant project. The SLIS developed student learning outcomes goals for the graduate program in library and information science. The goal for teaching is formulated in programmatic objectives for student learning outcomes and assessment measures for those objectives. These are reported along with a proposed model for the integrated assessment of student learning outcomes and teaching effectiveness.
