This is a revision of the original session offered in May 2020; it will cover new material and focus on student success in online assessments.
Are you looking for ways to revise and improve your online assessments? This session covers using online assessments (both formative and summative) to engage students. Topics include making changes to assessments to take advantage of the online environment, making sure online assessments are equitable, and helping manage student stress levels during these unprecedented times. This content applies to both blended and online courses.
This session is a collaboration with the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence. Our guest facilitator is Mary Ann Tobin, an Assistant Research Professor and SITE Consultant.
