College assessments are often a moment of great stress and inequity, but they are also an opportunity for profound learning, inclusion, and meaningful challenge for students. For those professors who do not have time to recreate an additional PhD in Education, we will use this time to dive into the evidence-based tenets of assessment design. Our goal is to link those tenets to usable steps that you can take in your courses.

Because assessment design is such a complex task, we will look for low-hanging fruit wherever possible to allow improvement within the constraints of an already-heavy teaching load. Participants may want to think beforehand about a particular assessment that they habitually use but for which they would like an alternative.

Ben Wiggins, Instructional Manager and regular Lecturer in Biology at the University of Washington

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 National Institute on Scientific Teaching.

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