Teaching, Learning, and Connecting Series 

Would you like to connect with colleagues from other disciplines, share and discuss learning assessment techniques, and bounce ideas off of each other in an informal setting?  Learning assessment techniques can promote active learning and provide us with evidence of our students’ progress toward learning goals or outcomes. We can also use these activities to encourage students to reflect on their learning processes so that they can become more self-regulated or self-directed learners.
