Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Forum 2016

Modified: October 21, 2016
On November 16, 2016, the Office of the Provost, in collaboration with the Assessment/Accreditation Council and the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, will host the fourth annual Learning, Teaching and Assessment Forum at the Norris University Center from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This year’s forum theme is Examining the Evidence of Student Learning.

Through interactive sessions, presenters will share initiatives across a wide range of disciplines and contexts at the course, unit, and school levels. This year’s topics include the assessment of learning without exams; using mastery learning to teach and assess communication skills; designing student-centered learning outcomes; and assessing learning using games. Please see the forum schedule for all presentation titles and presenters.

The forum will also hold a lunchtime panel, in which faculty members from a range of disciplines and schools will share their reflections and insights on the assessment of student learning. The faculty panelists include: Oluwaseyi Balogun (Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering); Zosia Krusberg (Physics and Astronomy); Franziska Lys (German); Inna Naroditskaya (Musicology); and Jacob Smith (Radio-Television-Film). The panel will be moderated by Candy Lee (Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications).

Following the formal program, there will also be a post-forum workshop focused on making assessment useful.
