(Cancelled) Designing Effective Assessment Strategies (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

University of Maryland

An important component of successful online teaching is developing efficient assessment strategies and methods. In this workshop you will explore formative and summative assessment techniques used in online education and develop assessment strategies suitable for your online course. Summative may be more commonly used in practice, but using formative techniques may help students develop and better assess their own knowledge and understanding of the material. Participants will also work on developing strategies for their courses.  Activities will involve discussion of formative and summative assessment in the classroom and implementation strategies. Students will also create a plan to help align learning objectives and activities with formative and summative assessments. 
 
Use of formative and summative assessments may allow students more chances to understand and evaluate their performance in the classroom.  These practices may be essential when working with course modules building from prior assignments. Faculty will also have a greater indication of material that may need more attention or review based on regular feedback from students after applying assessment techniques.

This workshop was developed for faculty involved with course design and faculty looking to add variety to their current set of assessment strategies in the classroom.

Event Image TLTC--Classroom interactions & non-native english speakers: What can we do better?
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

University of Maryland

“Why are they so quiet?” “Do they understand me?” “Is there something I can do to help them with language issues?” These questions are commonly asked by instructors across disciplines when non-native English speakers are present in their classes. To help maximize learning opportunities for this particular student population in our classes, this workshop focuses on helping participants examine their own pre-conceived notions of expected teacher and student roles in classroom interactions, parallelisms and discrepancies between those notions and the students’ notions of classroom interaction expectations, and interactional strategies to consider that promote both content and language learning in their classrooms.

This workshop is part of the inclusion and diversity workshop series sponsored in part by the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center, the Office of Inclusion and Diversity and The Graduate School. Participants who attend at least four workshops (there will be additional offerings in the spring semester), complete a short pre-workshop reading and write a short reflection are eligible for a letter of completion from the TLTC and either the Office of Diversity and Inclusion or The Graduate School.  For more information, please contact TLTC staff (tltc@umd.edu).  Readings will be emailed to registered participants a few days prior to the workshop and the reflections will be posted at our inclusion and diversity workshop blog (http://blog.umd.edu/cteinclusion).  Participants may use a pseudonym for posting reflections, but we ask that you identify yourself to TLTC staff for keeping track of your workshop completion purposes.
