DOLCE - November 5, 2021 - Faculty Reflections on Assessing with Technology
From Andy Jones
Our November 2021 DOLCE focused on technology affordances and challenges when assessing how well our students are learning the content, practices, and applications of our classes.
As assessment was an important theme of our 2021 Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology, we called upon some of our SITT presenters to touch briefly upon some of the content of their prerecorded presentations and interviews, and then to participate in a conversation about lessons learned about new and effective ways to assess our students’ learning.
We were so pleased to be joined by the following friends and colleagues:
- Audrey Fan, Biomedical Engineering. Please see her SITT 2021 interview with Dr. Andy, “A conversation about moving to project-based assessment”
- Debbie Fetter, Department of Nutrition. Please see her SITT 2021 interview with Dr. Andy, “A conversation about assessing with academic integrity in mind”
- Mona Monfared, College of Biological Sciences. Please see her SITT 2021 presentation, “What do students really want to know?: Making space for student inquiry in a high enrollment course”
- Sarah Faye, University Writing Program. Please see her SITT 2021 presentation, “What is Contract Grading?”
