Learning Goals & Assessment
February 22, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:30pm, repeating until February 22, 2018
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?
