with Professor Elizabeth Barkley
Learning Assessment Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty
Student Engagement Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty
and Collaborative Learning Techniques: A Handbook for College FacultyDue to popular
demand, we are bringing Elizabeth Barkley back for an encore seminar on Student
Engagement. Faculty who were not able to
attend in 2016 are encouraged to re-apply.
A common challenge for many college faculty today is
achieving persistent, high-quality student involvement in learning experiences. Faculty struggle to understand how best to
involve their students in important learning activities or how to gauge just what
and how well students have learned as a result of their involvement in these
Join us in the 2017 May Teaching Seminar to explore these questions and
develop strategies to maximize students’ learning in your classes. In this interdisciplinary, interactive
seminar, Professor Barkley will guide participants through a process of
designing engaging learning experiences and assessing what and how our students
are learning in these experiences by:
- Examining strategies that promote student engagement in their learning;
- Guiding participants as they select high-involvement strategies to
engage their learners in their classes;
- Exploring a Learning Assessment Techniques (LAT) cycle; and
- Demonstrating how this intentional design can be used to understand what and how our students are learning.
Each individual or team will construct a Student Engagement
Plan that includes course/program specific strategies for how they will address
each of the five main components of the Student Engagement framework.
Participants will conclude the session by sharing their ideas about embedding
strategies to promote and assess engaged student learning.
We are no longer accepting applications.
