Teaching and learning online forces us to re-think the design and administration of our assessments. Assignments and activities that can work in a face-to-face course—a quiz or test; a discussion; a group presentation—are unlikely to be as convenient to administer in the online world. And because we are not interacting with students in the same ways as before, it’s easy to escalate the number of assignments and activities to make sure students are doing the work. This can lead to a perfect storm of over-activity that overwhelms students and stresses out faculty.This session looks at the challenges and practicality of converting in-class and in-person assessment activities into formats that work online. We’ll look at the function of assessment activities with respect to your goals. Join us as we explore online assessment strategies that can ease your work load and increase the value of your students’ experience.Date: Monday, October, 26, 10:00 - 11:30 amRegistration: https://inviu.viu.ca/TinyUrl.cfm?ID=357Contact: ciel@viu.ca | Centre for Innovation and Excellence in LearningfalseaYqCFcQpUzxLBYhTummH26494
