In recent years there has been much debate about the role and value of lectures in our teaching. Is it possible to deliver a lecture and still be learning-centered in your pedagogical approach? Are lectures ineffective? Might lectures even discriminate against certain groups of students? We will read three short articles to inform our discussion of this topic: from The Atlantic: Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “The Art of the College Lecture,” and from the New York Times: Annie Murphy Paul’s “Are College Lectures Unfair?” and Molly Worthen’s “Lecture me. Really.”

Angelo and Cross state (1993), "classroom assessment requires the development of its own 'appropriate technology', -- simple tools designed for the task at hand," to improve student learning. This workshop explores the utility of a range of assessment tools appropriate for our courses across disciplines. Working with participants' current classroom materials, we will apply assessment strategies to improve our current assessments, explore alternatives, and consider how to involve students in the assessment process.
