As educators, we hope to inspire students to be curious and instill in them a desire to continue learning beyond the classroom walls. Lifelong learning is a required academic and developmental goal of many universities and for all ABET engineering programs (ABET Student Outcome i: a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning). The attributes of a lifelong learner to meet academic and ABET outcomes are the same ones that we espouse in the development of active duty Army Officers. However, of all of the outcomes of an academic curriculum, lifelong learning is one of the most difficult to assess and a metric for doing so is in high demand. The lifelong learning model in an Environmental Engineering Seminar will be presented. Although meaningful assessment of lifelong learning is not borne out until students have graduated, the faculty and instructors at our university have developed a technique to both assess and inspire components of lifelong learning that will serve as the foundation for future personal and professional growth.
