Set Yourself up for Success with Lesson Planning

Schedule: Wednesday, August 10, 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Location: Online
Instructors: Debbie Rickeard

This workshop is being held online. If you want to attend the in-person session, please see below.

Lesson planning can offer instructors a road map to plot out the objectives, activities, and assessments for each class, thereby helping to use class time effectively. Carefully constructing a plan for each lesson can give instructors a sense of confidence by maximizing the likelihood of students achieving the learning outcomes while having meaningful learning experiences. In this practical session, the basics of lesson planning will be outlined, and participants will have an opportunity to see how different active learning strategies and assessments can be tied into the planning process. Even more, participants will obtain useful models and templates to help get them started on their lesson planning journey.

This workshop will be HyFlex (in-person session will be held in Erie Hall room 2123).

Assessment Methods: Key Considerations and Examples

Schedule: Friday, August 12, 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Location: Online
More than just an act of measurement, assessment is a fundamental part of teaching and learning. In this collaborative session, we will investigate the core purpose of assessment and what pedagogical role assessment should play in improving learning. We will discuss the rationale behind different kinds of assessments (i.e., summative and formative) as well as how meaningful assessment frames learning and is central to aiding students’ experience. This session will also feature a panel of instructors who will present case studies that illustrate innovative assessment methods within different academic disciplines. In exploring various approaches to assessment, participants will have the opportunity to extend their repertoire and consider ways of designing new assessment strategies.
