The UDL Your Course Series was designed to support faculty members on their exploration and understanding of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework. UDL is an inclusive model for teaching that centers the needs of students with disabilities, with the overall goal of creating a learning environment that is accessible to all students without the need for accommodations. In this fourth workshop, Flexible Assessment, we will investigate variation in assessment and the use of a common rubric to enhance student choice and creativity. Many times, students understand the content, but the traditional test is a barrier to success. Using a variety of assessments gives a better overall measure of understanding. Variation in assessments has been shown to not only increase accessibility, but also engagement and learning for all learners across disciplines. 

Please note: Attendees do not need to attend the UDL Your Course Workshop Series in any particular order.

A teaching philosophy can be a useful tool beyond the academic job search or review process (although it's also helpful for those.) Come to this workshop to explore your teaching values now, and practice providing compelling evidence of how these values show up in your class. Open to all (including graduate students). 

Bring what you like to write with (paper/laptop, etc.)

In this interactive workshop, we welcome back Dr. Noah Finkelstein and panel guests from around the country to explore the role of student voice in the evaluation of teaching. Students are uniquely positioned to provide data and feedback on teaching effectiveness; however, our current systems are fraught with problems ranging from bias to non-actionable feedback. We present the opportunities (and limitations) of three different mechanisms for effectively including and interpreting student voice in teaching evaluation: student surveys/ rating systems, student interviews, and soliciting student letters. Participants will collectively examine tools and practices for the use of student voice and engage with academics from several different disciplines to discuss how they have enacted these new approaches in their units.

This event is a required part of the Departmental Action Team (DAT) program and is open to the entire campus and all departments considering examining their current approaches to evaluating teaching. 

Lunch is provided.
