Have you conducted an assessment that was informative and/or useful to your teaching development? Are you willing to share?
We are looking for volunteers to share “flash presentation” examples of assessments they’ve completed in their courses. The goal is for all attendees, including presenters, to be inspired and to walk away with some ideas for assessments they could do in their own courses. As such, we are hoping to collect a variety of assessment examples that vary in type (direct and/or indirect), purpose (e.g., to examine the effectiveness of an assignment, a teaching method, course format, a course policy, etc.), and/or methodologies (qualitative or quantitative, survey or observational, etc.).
Presenters will be asked to prepare a brief, 5-minute presentation (including a single powerpoint slide) that addresses the following prompts:
- What did you do (and why)?
- What did you learn?
- What might you do next? or what advice do you have for others?
Again, variety is a goal! So please volunteer if you have any examples to share! The examples don’t have to document “improvements” in teaching/learning—anything that helped you better understand classroom dynamics will work!
If you are willing to share your assessment efforts with colleagues, please complete this brief application, which includes the three above questions. Apply before November 30 at 5pm.
