Rethink assessments and exams (workshop)

Content

Assessments (exams) are one of the most important incentives for student motivation and student learning. Are you assessing all you want/need to assess and are you assessing at the right time?

Assessments have multiple functions such as judgement of student achievement, certification, and support for student learning. It is difficult to balance these functions and each course module has different challenges.

The workshop will be a mixture of inspiration to new assessment methods, general and specific considerations at ST, and a redesign of assessment methods in your own teaching. A special focus will be assessment and feedback during the course module (continuous assessment).

Learning outcomes

  • Argue for your choice of assessment method in your own teaching.
  • Redesign your final and continuous assessment method.
  • Reflect upon how assessment can be improved in your course module.

Flipped Classroom (workshop) (kopi 1)

Content

Quite brief, Flipped Classroom focus on swapping the activities of a traditional teaching method, so you primarily spend the time on "what really changes" and, for instance, let lecturing be video based and online via Blackboard. Local evaluations and experience from ST have shown that the concept has the potential to create both engaging, flexible and effective learning.

The workshop is divided into three so-called learning modules: one for before, during and after the workshop. The learning modules can be found on Blackboard in the course named ST Educator (remember to log in).  

Learning outcome

  • You get insight into Flipped Classroom as a concept with the various options available
  • That you have reflected on your own teaching in relation to opportunities for Flipped Classroom
  • You get concrete tools to get started with Flipped Classroom

Info

The workshop takes about 3 hours and is held by Anna Hollyoak Helleberg, ST Learning Lab.

Active learning in large courses (workshop)

Content

You will be introduced to various techniques, which can be used to create student activity and  interaction in your lecture. You will learn digital techniques, like for example AU VOTE. You will also learn 'analog' techniques to activate the students (e.g. Memory Matrix where students place concepts in a matrix) or one-minute papers (the last two minutes of the lecture is spent on student answers the question: "What was the most important thing you learned today?"and discuss it with the person next to him/her).

You will get hands-on experience with the tools and you will work with the tools in relation to your own teaching.  

Learning outcomes

After the workshop you will be able to

  • activate the students using digital tools in your lecture
  • make the students reflect on their learning

Practical information

Update the learning outcomes of your course module (workshop)

Content

During the workshop you will rethink/update the learning outcomes and competences for your own course module according to constructive alignment. You will discuss how you can use the SOLO taxonomy to make your leaning goals more precise. How is progression considered within your course module and in relation to previous and later courses? If your course module train and assess important academic competencies, how can these be included in the learning outcomes?

Learning outcome

After the workshop you should be able to

  • Redesign the learning outcomes and competences in your own course
  • Justify the verbs describing the learning outcomes using the SOLO taxonomy
  • Reflect upon progressions and general academic competencies within your course

Info

More feedback – from and to students (workshop)

Content

How can small feedback activities give a huge effect? During the workshop you will get inspiration on how to include more feedback into your course. The focus will be on peer and self-assessment, assessment criteria and planning of the feedback process to secure that the student apply the feedback they receive. How do we train the student to be self-reflective learners that can assess their own performance?

Learning outcome

After the workshop you should be able to

  • Incorporate feedback activities in your own course
  • Plan feedback activities that involve students in receiving and providing feedback
  • Develop assessment criteria for feedback activities
  • Communicate the learning outcomes of your feedback activities
