Constructing Effective Statements of Intended Learning Outcomes for Grant Recipients

GRANTS - LTSI Grants

This 2 1/2 hour workshop will focus on constructing statements of intended learning outcomes for a course or project. The workshop will introduce several concepts including what we want our students to be able to do after the course (performances), how well they will be able to do the performances (criteria), and the circumstances under which we would expect the students to demonstrate mastery (conditions). By the end of the workshop participants will construct at least five module-level learning outcomes for their target course or project and give and receive constructive feedback. Participants are asked to bring their current learning outcome statements (if they exist) and be prepared to describe briefly their target course or project to fellow participants.

The learning-centred lecture

LECTURING - Lecturing: Enhancing Student Learning Series

How can lectures become more learning-centred? What does learning-centred mean? In this session, we will explore how to make the lecture more active by having students doing more than listening and taking notes, whether the class size is 50 or 300. By using learning-focussed methods in lecture, the following can be achieved: increase student learning, achieve learning outcomes, and at least maintain, if not increase, student rating of the course (Prosser & Trigwell, 2014).

Summative Assessment

GRADING - Grading Certificate Series

How can one make a final decision about a student’s achievement in a course upon its completion? Find a high-stakes mechanism by which a student’s final performance can be measured with respect to that of other students or against some standard or benchmark? In this workshop, we will consider the challenges associated with summative assessment, including the alignment of summative grades with the course intended learning outcomes and the design of assignments and tests - in particular, multiple-choice tests.

Formative assessment: Why it is necessary

GRADING - Grading Certificate Series

A common concern when considering implementing formative assessment into a course is that it will take too much of an instructor’s time. In this workshop, we will discuss the significance of formative assessment, how it aligns with summative assessment, how the time invested in formative reduces the time spent on summative. We will also work on how to implement formative assessment, such as forms of low-stakes assignments and scaffolding assignments.
