Learning Goals and Assessment (Option 1)
February 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This workshop is for graduate students and post docs only
A key task in teaching is aligning course goals, lesson objectives, and learning objectives in assignments or activities with assessment goals. Each discipline approaches this alignment in unique ways. Reflecting on alignment of your goals and objectives, assignments, and assessments reduces the confusion and frustration for students. In this session, we will focus on the following questions:
- How do your course goals, curricula goals, and disciplinary goals interrelate in your course?
- How do you know your students are learning?
- Do your assessment strategies assess student performance?
- What will your Teaching Statement say about how you align your assessment of students with the learning goals you have for a course?
