Workshop Overview

Are you wondering if your students are actually learning what you hoped they would learn? Is your course design working out the way you planned it? End the semester on a high note by identifying effective strategies for helping students reflect on their learning so they can understand the connections between course objectives and what they have learned throughout the semester.  Join us to examine how your final course assessments align to the learning objectives and brainstorm ways to engage students in helpful end-of-the semester reflections.

Participants will

·       Reflect on the effectiveness of their course design.
