Assessment Teaching Workshops

We are offering two exciting workshops (9am - 12pm and 1pm - 4pm) that will give you tools that you can immediately use in your classroom! 

Title: Becoming Scholars in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (9am - 12pm)

Facilitated by Rob Kadel, Ph.D., Asst. Dir., Research in Education Innovation, Center for 21st Century Universities

This half-day workshop will strive to achieve three goals: 1) We will explore the meaning of the “Scholarship of Teaching and Learning” and why it would be important to your work as an instructor; 2) You will work with other instructors to establish educational research questions relevant to your field (and to help the others do the same); and 3) You will explore research methods for collecting data to answer those research questions. Group work will be encouraged throughout the workshop as SOTL is as much a collaborative field as any in higher education. Come with an inquisitive mindset and be prepared to leave with the beginnings of a toolbox that will serve you well throughout your academic career.

Backwards Course Design & Serve-Learn-Sustain (1pm - 4pm)

Facilitated by Dr. Ruth Poproski (Assistant Director of Faculty Teaching and Learning Initiatives, Center for Teaching and Learning)

In this three-hour workshop we will look at your SLS courses through the lens of effective course design practices. We’ll begin by looking at and refining your goals for your students, followed by opportunities to explore options for assessment in relation to the SLS-specific components of your courses. Join us with a specific course in mind, and leave with a more robust and aligned plan for your next iteration of that class.
