Defining and Assessing Learning Outcomes [Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Series]
Monday, June 18, 2012 and Monday, June 25, 2012
9:30 AM ~ 11:30 AM, HHB 128
Facilitator: Joe Parsons, Acting Assistant Director, Learning and Teaching Centre.
We often assume that if we work hard at teaching, our students will learn what we want them to learn, and that student learning will be obvious. Experience and research have shown that this is not necessarily the case. It is therefore important to ask, "How do we know that our students are learning?" and "How do we know that a particular teaching strategy, learning tool, assignment, quiz or exam is helping students achieve desired learning outcomes?" This workshop is designed to help you define learning outcomes and develop assessment strategies. Part I (June 18th) will focus on how to define learning outcomes and measures. Part II (June 25th) will provide an opportunity for participants to share their learning outcomes and measures, and receive feedback from one another.
