A Mini-Makeover for Your Course: Aligning Learning Outcomes to Assessment and Teaching Strategies
Three-part learning series encourage participants to attend three connected sessions that focus on an impactful practice for enhancing student learning. The series are designed with application activities between sessions to allow for more meaningful and useful learning for all participants. If you would like to participate, please know that all three sessions are required for attendance and that there is some additional work beyond the sessions.
In this three-part series, participants will makeover a course they are teaching in Spring 2016. We’ll start by helping you update your course learning outcomes and align them directly with evaluation and assessment strategies. Then we’ll look at what teaching strategies best align with the course design. The focus will be on clarifying measurable and demonstrable learning outcomes and developing the appropriate number and type of formal evaluation and informal assessment methods for deep student learning experiences. Got a course that could use a mini makeover – sign up and we’ll practice what we learn between sessions to spruce up a course for great teaching and learning!
