Tuning is a faculty-driven process that identifies what a student should know and be able to do in a chosen discipline when a degree has been earned - an associate, bachelor’s or master’s. The process is designed to make higher education outcomes more transparent to all stakeholders, including students, employers, and parents, and to ensure the quality of degrees across institutions.
The Institute for Evidence-Based Change (IEBC) is facilitating implementation of the Tuning process in the U.S., funded by Lumina Foundation.  As part of its assistance, IEBC is offering a free, one-hour Tuning USA webinar, hosted by National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) and supported by Lumina Foundation.  Read more here.
