Do you drag & drop large video files right onto your AsULearn course page? Then this 30-minute, very basic session is for you! This is our most basic Kaltura workshop.

Developing Rubrics for Assignments

Thursday, September 30, 2021 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Online in Zoom

Would you like to use rubrics to better evaluate student work and to more efficiently provide feedback? A rubric is a scoring tool based on the criteria for evaluating the quality of student work and can be used for research reports, essays, projects, performances, and presentations. In this workshop, we will present basic guidelines for creating and using rubrics and participants will spend time developing or revising a rubric for one course assignment.

Constructing Better Exams

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Online in Zoom

Have your students ever told you your exams didn't test what they expected, seemed unfair, or were too hard? Have you had challenges with designing exams for online courses? Exams and quizzes can serve an important role in assessing student learning, however, many tests are unclear, not aligned with course learning objectives, or challenging to conduct online. In this workshop we will examine issues with current testing practices and offer tips and strategies for more successful results. Registration Link

Part II: Subtle Acts of Exclusion: How to Understand, Identify, & Stop Microaggressions Book Study

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Although unintentional, we have all committed subtle acts of exclusion (SAE, a.k.a. microaggressions) which can alienate our colleagues, students, and friends. These actions and phrases often go unaddressed and are harmful. Join us in learning how to spot and address stereotypes, objectification, and other forms of microaggressions that separate instead of uniting.

Organizing for Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences

Monday, September 20, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
218 Anne Belk Hall, CAE Classroom 222

Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) provide students with the opportunity to both engage in hands-on research and develop career-related, transferable skills (ex. teamwork). These classes also help to increase retention in STEAM fields and improve equitable access to research opportunities. Developing thoughtfully designed CUREs requires identifying: 1) a research question that can be translated to an undergraduate classroom, 2) the skills that students will engage in, and 3) methods to report their findings to the broader scientific community (ex. publications).
