Center for Innovation In Teaching and Learning

September 2023

September 5, 2023

Course learning objectives guide faculty in their course design and give students insight into the knowledge and skills they will be learning throughout the semester. Join us to discuss two ways to develop and evaluate course and module learning objectives: SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound) and ABCD (Audience, Behavior, Condition, Degree).  

Course Mapping & Alignment
September 12, 2023

Aligned courses ensure students’ knowledge and skills are measured according to established learning objectives. Courses are deemed "aligned" when instructors ensure that assessments, activities, and content closely match the course and module learning objectives. In this workshop, we will discuss the benefits of creating and reviewing both course-level and module-level learning objectives. We will also show examples of mapping at the daily, weekly, and semester levels for alignment in different disciplines.

Personalized Learning - Data Driven Decisions
September 19, 2023 

Personalized learning is an approach to education that tailors instruction to students’ needs. In this session, we will discuss the importance of data-driven decisions and provide information about Small Group Instructional Diagnostics. SGID's are a simple and straightforward evaluation process that uses structured small group discussions among students to provide confidential feedback to an instructor, generally around the midpoint of a term. Join this session to learn some practical strategies for integrating data-driven decisions in your course.
