Developing Inquiry Skills Workshop Series: Assessing Inquiry Projects

Developing Inquiry Skills Workshop Series: Assessing Inquiry Projects

When:
Thursday, February 15, 2018
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Where:
Mackintosh-Corry Hall
Room: F200, Large Collaboration Space
Find on Campus Map
Description:

Facilitated by Cory Laverty, Sue Fostaty Young, and Andrea Phillipson, Centre for Teaching and Learning

One approach to developing student inquiry skills is to break down an inquiry-based assignment into multiple parts and provide feedback at each stage, also known as “assessment for learning”. Students benefit from having an opportunity to reflect on and revise their work as they go and instructors benefit from a more carefully crafted end product resulting from a process of ongoing skill development. Join us to share examples of this approach and to construct an assessment plan for one of your own assignments.

 Learning Outcomes:

  • Design a sequence of learning and assessment activities that support formative feedback enabling inquiry work in your course.
  • Describe the role of rubrics in assessing inquiry processes and products.
  • Participants plan an inquiry assessment and offer and receive feedback from colleagues.
