There are endless permutations when it comes to assessments: quizzes, midterms, finals, essays, reports, portfolios, presentations, the options seem endless. And don’t forget rubrics: holistic, analytic, checklist, self-assessment. What also seems endless? The time we spend marking and providing feedback. In this session, you are invited to join us for a brainstorm discussion on effective and authentic assignments that you can look forward to marking, and can engage and energize  your students. There is a lot of creativity happening on campus when it comes to assessment, and we want to share it. Come to share your ideas and experiences, and to hear what your colleagues are doing.“Teaching from the Trenches, Live!” aims to provide faculty with an opportunity to share about individual experiences and hopefully inspire you to try new things that may help you manage the assessment of your students. This is a chance to connect with colleagues, to share ideas and to find growth and creativity as we await the time when we can all be together again. We will build connection on our virtual campus.Date: Thursday, January 28, 10:00 - 11:00 amLocation: Zoom Online RoomRegistration: https://inviu.viu.ca/TinyUrl.cfm?ID=385Questions: ciel@viu.ca | Centre for Innovation and Excellence in LearningfalseaYqCFcQpUzxLBYhTummH26494
