Just in time for the fall semester, our next roundtable discussion will address assessment of student learning in the time of COVID. As with many other aspects of teaching, the pandemic has affected assessment activities at the course and departmental levels. Shirley Lin (US Naval Academy) will facilitate this SLiThEr on how to use literature discussion LOs, a VIPEr speciality, as an assessment instrument. She will briefly discuss how to adapt/design literature discussions for this purpose and how to use chemistry education research methods to analyze and report results.
Next week Joanne Stewart (Hope College) will host a discussion about facilitating group work in an online environment. Just like our other SLiThEr’s, this is meant to be an informal discussion about strategies for faculty teaching. Join us on Zoom on Thursday, August 13th at 4 pm EDT (GMT-4) for this sixth VIPEr SLiThEr (Supporting Learning with Interactive Teaching: a Hosted, Engaging Roundtable) event.
Next week, Kari Stone (Lewis University) and Anthony Fernandez (Merrimack College) will facilitate a discussion about their favorite LOs and how they use these LOs in their courses. Come prepared to talk about your favorites as well or ask others for suggestions to help you teach a particular topic. Join us on Zoom on Thursday, August 6th at 4 pm EDT (GMT-4) for this fifth VIPEr SLiThEr (Supporting Learning with Interactive Teaching: a Hosted, Engaging Roundtable) event.
