Assessment for Learning in the Online Classroom
Lorna Richey Kearns PhD, Senior Consultant for Next Generating Learning, University of Pittsburgh, will talk with us about online assessment and best practices for evaluating student performance.
Teaching online presents challenges as well as opportunities for instructors to know their students and assess their learning. On one hand, the physical distance separating students and instructors precludes many of the social cues and interactions we expect in a classroom setting. On the other, the communication tools and learning technologies we use in the online environment provide multiple opportunities for students to practice their developing skills and to participate productively in a classroom learning community. In this session, we will review evidence-based assessment strategies for online teaching and share our own best practices with one another.
