Authentic Assessment

Authentic Assessment

Authentic Assessment is a half course that will introduce you to the principles and practice of this approach to assessment of student learning. Authentic assessment is an approach that takes into account the contexts in which that learning will actually be used once students leave the university. It is an attempt to assess what students actually know, value, and can do in a way that is well-integrated into the entire learning environment of a course. In this course you will learn how to align assessment with intended learning outcomes, how to design meaningful assessment measures that motivate students and even design assessments that help students learn as they are being assessed.

At this time, there are no upcoming events in "Authentic Assessment".

Teaching in a Blackboard Learning Environment

Teaching in a Blackboard Learning Environment

Are you looking for a concentrated experience to harness Blackboard Learn's power to provide interactive student engagement and efficient online assessment, just in time for the upcoming semester? This course provides a fast-paced and hands-on exploration of commonly-used assessment and communication tools in Blackboard.

This hybrid half-course is a series of three full-day sessions divided over two weekends coupled with online modules that will introduce participants to the Blackboard Learn environment including menu configuration, and creating assessments with integrated grading. We will also provide some development time and guidance to help you actually prepare your upcoming course.

New Faculty, mid-career faculty, and instructors with teaching assignments for the upcoming semester will be given priority, as registration spaces are limited. (Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops to the F2F sessions where possible).
