Summaries

Summary Sentence: Join us for a teaching and learning workshop!

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Imagine a world where students show up at class excited about a project they are working on, where they respond to homework prompts with ingenuity and personality, and where they thank you on your end-of-semester evaluations for the opportunities you’ve given them to create, to express themselves, to think in unusual ways, and to enjoy your course.

In this workshop we will explore a variety of alternative approaches to course assessments, in hopes we can inspire you to make small changes that may have big impact on how your students engage with their coursework. Drawing on examples from your Georgia Tech colleagues, we will focus on ways to give students choice when the method doesn’t matter as much as the content, and ways to move them toward deeper learning and application of concepts, without entirely re-inventing your course.
