BUSH FOUNDATION- SPONSORED WORKSHOP ON CURRICULUM- EMBEDDED EVALUATION TO BE HELD AT SDSM& T NOVEMBER 21
A Bush Foundation- sponsored workshop on “ Introduction to Curriculum- Embedded Evaluation“ will be held on the SDSM& T campus on Friday, November 21, from 12: 00 to 3: 30 p. m. in the Surbeck Center Bump Lounge. The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Larissa Naples, a nationally recognized private consultant who works with a number of large engineering schools on meta- assessment models and ABET Criteria 2000. This half- day workshop will introduce participants to the basic concepts underlying curriculum- embedded evaluation and assessment. Participants will learn how the information contained in a meta- assessment rubric can be used to integrate and streamline course design, instruction, and assessment activities.
Participants will be introduced to the processes of designing and scoring outcomes- oriented examinations, portfolio assessments, and " authentic task" assessments. By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to: ( 1) describe the theoretical premises of curriculum- embedded evaluation; ( 2) use a preexisting assessment rubric ( AR) to develop a lesson plan for teaching the outcome( s) in the AR, including the selection of classroom assessment methods appropriate for measuring and documenting those outcomes; ( 3) justify the choice of teaching and assessment activities based on the principles of CEE. This will be achieved through a combination of interactive lecture, hands- on lesson/ assessment design activities, and group discussion of assessment designs.
For additional information, contact Dr. Stuart Kellogg, SDSM& T Pietz Associate Professor and Coordinator of Industrial Engineering, at 394- 1271.
