The transition to remote instruction has left instructors wondering how to conduct meaningful assessment in online environments, where they have less oversight of student behaviors. Our mixed methods investigations have provided a deeper understanding of how instructor-based activity characteristics affect student buy-in and utilization of in-person and online assessment activities.

Building on this research, we will consider how instructors might implement online assessments to best serve the overarching goals of understanding what students know and promoting student learning.

About the presenter
Brian Couch earned a bachelor's degree in biology from Regis University and a doctorate in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University before transitioning to education research as a postdoc at the University of Colorado-Boulder and now faculty member at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His research group has developed several instruments, administration strategies, and question formats to assess conceptual understanding and investigated how activity characteristics impact student engagement with formative assessments.

Series Overview
The Scientific Teaching in Practice Webinar Series extends the learning and dialogue that occurs at the Summer Institutes (SI) on Scientific Teaching into a year-round community that supports and inspires evidence-based teaching. Each month, the SI community is invited to attend an interactive webinar related to the practice and/or dissemination of scientific teaching. The webinar will be facilitated by someone experienced in that area, integrating significant time for questions and open discussion. Webinars are open to SI alums as well as those generally interested in scientific teaching and evidence-based teaching strategies.

Coordinated by the following
The series is brought to you by Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching.

This web talk is promoted by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT).
