LAHORE (PR) Lahore University of Management and Science (LUMS) is going to introduce several initiatives aimed at improving the universitys institutional effectiveness. Central to this effort will be the development of a process of learning outcomes assessment, and Harvard University assessment expert Scott Barge will be visiting LUMS this week to help launch the process. Barge has helped universities in several countries to implement a dynamic system of assessment, and visit will be a great asset to LUMS. He will be meeting LUMS community members individually and leading a workshop for all faculty members. As LUMS is the first university in Pakistan to embark on an initiative of this kind, observers from the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, the Pakistan Engineering Council and other local institutions will be invited to participate.
