Learning objectives can sometimes seem static and impersonal in nature. How can we make them come to life in the classroom? Write performance criteria! Performance criteria are the expectations given to learners before a performance that define the characteristics which make up a high quality performance related to achieving a learning objective. Participants attending the workshop will be able to articulate the value of writing and using performance criteria, practice using a methodology for writing performance criteria, and assess performance criteria to improve quality.

Do you feel comfortable and prepared in addressing academic dishonesty in your course?

Exams are a helpful assessment tool if aligned to your course objectives and goals. However, they can present a challenge with issues of academic dishonesty depending on the structure and design of the exam. This workshop will explore strategies for creating test questions and an environment that can promote academic integrity. We will also discuss the process of addressing academic integrity issues if they do arise. CETL is partnering with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to deliver this workshop.
