Sep 13- Active Learning with Student Response Systems and Canvas Using clickers or a software-based student response system can be an effective way to get student input or test student understanding of concepts in the classroom. Jared Johnson, David Mortensen, and Scott Allen reviewed several student response systems over the summer and will demonstrate two of these systems that work well and integrate with Canvas: Poll Everywhere and Squarecap. Bring your mobile device and come learn how these systems can be used in the classroom and with Canvas. Sep 28- Putting the Pieces Together: Using CLOs to Guide Course Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment The purpose of this presentation is to help faculty members as they work on the parts of their courses that come before the grading and the formal assessment processes (these aspects of assessment have been discussed at length in other workshops and training sessions). Questions the presenters will discuss during this workshop will include:
- How can faculty members use Course Learning Outcomes in the initial design phase of courses and in the construction of daily class sessions?
- How can faculty members informally assess student learning as class is happening?
