For many of us, our approach to teaching is emergent from the everyday challenges we face in our courses. We respond in the way that makes the most sense and, over time, our repertoire of responses becomes our teaching approach. This workshop is an opportunity to step back and examine our teaching beliefs, goals, and practices, so that we can be more intentional and purposeful.

Assessment is the latest trend to sweep higher education. While its theoretical roots trace back to a desire to use assignments and exams to extend learning and improve teaching, the actual implementation of certain recommended practices in the classroom leaves many educators confused or frustrated, wondering if this isn't all a giant bean counting exercise in futility. In this session we will demystify assessment by comparing several theories of classroom assessment and introducing some tools and strategies with high impact-to-cost ratio.
