Session 1 – January 31, 3:30-5:00 PM
“Integrating Campus Labs’ Technologies Into Teaching and Learning”
The ability to easily collect data has vast potential implications within the world of teaching and learning, but the abundance of tools available to do this collection can make the process feel overwhelming. This session will focus on using the Campus Labs Baseline platform (Survey Builder, Rubrics, and Student Response System) in order to collect data that is relevant to your practice as an educator and to provide evidence of your students’ development as learners.
Session 2 – February 21, 3:30-5:00 PM
“Leveraging Data to Capture Teaching Effectiveness In the Moment”
Often a primary challenge with instruction is identifying the effectiveness of one’s teaching on a day-to-day basis. Formative approaches can remedy this by allowing us to identify the strengths and gaps in our efforts to educate our students in real-time, while instruction is fresh in students’ minds. This session will introduce attendees to using the Campus Labs Feedback Formative Assessment Tool and Student Response System in order to receive real-time feedback on instruction and teaching practices as well as capturing direct and indirect measures of student learning.
Session 3 – April 26, 11:00-12:30 PM (Library Computer Lab 1st Floor)
“Qualitative Data Analysis for Teaching and Assessment”
Portfolios, interviews, focus groups, and observations are just a few of many data collection approaches used in qualitative assessment, but analyzing and sharing that data in a way that leverages technology can be challenging. This session will outline acceptable standards of rigor for qualitative assessments and explore the steps involved in general qualitative data analysis and interpretation. After building a foundation in qualitative assessment, the session will offer steps you can take to organize your data into themes and effectively share the data with various audiences.
