CITLA’s 4th Annual Winter Workshop on January 7, 2014
Do you wonder how to find the time to participate in an assessment process that is effective and realistic? Plan to attend the fourth annual CITLA Winter Workshop on January 7, 2014 featuring a session by Barbara Walvoord, Professor Emerita, University of Notre Dame, South Bend, IN and author of Assessment Clear and Simple. In the workshop, participants will consider examples of assessment processes from various disciplines. They will reflect on the resources they currently have, both in terms of departmental meetings and customs and in terms of typical student assignments, as well as the data that is missing from their departmental discussions and how to gather it to create the "basic, no-frills departmental assessment plan."
Please join us to participate in a Socratic Seminar on Thursday, December 12, 2013, from 12:30 to 2:00, in room 1134, located behind the cafeteria on the Knight campus. This activity is part of an ongoing Faculty Learning Community and it is open to the entire faculty. A Socratic Seminar is a valuable discussion technique that can be adapted to any classroom. It is interactive, student-centered and content specific. Our topic will be "Evaluating Student Progress."
