TO: Only Faculty, All campuses

FROM: Center for the Enhancement of Learning & Teaching

Applications are now being accepted for the March 2017 Institute for Learning Assessment.

To apply please visit the CELT website

What are your concerns about student learning? Have any of your classroom activities, assignments, or assessments left you wondering whether students actually learned what you taught?

Join us on March 20, 21, and 22 as we work together to create an assessment plan for your course that will provide you and your students with targeted feedback and information on student progress toward your learning goals.

By the end of this Institute for Learning Assessment, faculty members will:

  • Develop tools to evaluate incoming student knowledge, skills and attitudes before, or early in, the course
  • Create classroom assessment tools, assignments, and practice opportunities that promote student learning
  • Develop a plan to continuously identify and use assessment to analyze teaching-learning issues, create targeted student feedback to respond to classroom needs, and provide data to inform learning progress

Please note that you must be available to attend all three days of the Institute in order to apply.

The ILA is appropriate for people who already have a course syllabus. For new courses, the  Course Design Institute, in early June, is appropriate.

Use of the latest available technology provides us with several ways to reach community members through public postings, information hotlines, and an emergency alert system integrating telephone, text messaging and email.
