Friday November 19, 10-11:30AM
Online via Zoom
As instructors we want to ensure that our students leave our classes having learned something. However, how well do we measure what was actually learned? We want our students to be able to do things like think critically or solve problems, but how do we assess that? Our accrediting bodies demand evidence that our students are meeting particular outcomes, but how do we really know if they are doing so? In this workshop we will learn about tools called taxonomies of learning that allow us to formulate questions and measure outcomes across a variety of domains. We will use multiple taxonomies of learning to create questions and think deeply about what we want our students to learn and how we can make sure that they are learning. Finally we will use taxonomies of learning to think beyond a single course and map outcomes for entire curricula.
