CITL Faculty Workshop Series: Best Practices for Teaching
Please join us in this faculty workshop series as we meet new colleagues to learn, discuss, and share best practices used by the best college teachers. These strategies are based on pedagogy and the research literature. Our goal is to form a faculty learning community where you will leave with new ideas and approaches to immediately implement in your courses. Since each session builds on each other, we hope that you will be able to attend all three meetings.Session 3: Your Tests - Are You Measuring Your Students' Learning Fairly?Wednesday, June 15, 201411:00 – 1:00 (Lunch Provided)Room 428, Armory Building
Have you heard your students say this? ”You’re unfair” “We weren’t taught that” “This test is too hard and too long”
The task of assessing and grading student learning is one of the most complex and stressful responsibilities of the faculty member, and, at the same time, most important. It is critical that the grading process is fair, reliable, valid, and relevant so that the resulting grade is an accurate representation of a student’s achievement. When done properly, the grade and accompanying feedback are additional teaching opportunities where students can improve their learning.Please mark these sessions on your calendarAll Wednesdays, 11:00 – 1:00 (Lunch at 11:00)Room 428, Armory Building
