Sept. 23rd, 2011 – CAETL presents Talking About Teaching – Supporting and Assessing Student Learning
Friday, September 23rd, 2011
2:00 – 4:00 P.M.
Students often pursue post-secondary education to gain appropriate skills so they can eventually gain successful employment. Employers are asking more and more that students be able to adapt and succeed in changing work environments; think outside the box and have creative problem solving skills, as well as be knowledgeable in the specific discipline they pursue. It is critical that the UofL is developing these skills in students. This discussion will explore how we can ensure that these skills are developing within our institution and with our students, as well as how to identify successful student learning and support it. Speakers and attendees will be encouraged to explore issues such as assessment plans, assessment methods, self-assessment by students, grading and other issues related to how students are determined to be successful learners.
Facilitators for this event include:
Nola Aitken, Bonnie Lee, Mark Pijl Zieber, and Phil Jones
Facilitators will work with small discussion groups during this session. All attendees will have a chance to engage each facilitator in these groups.
