Camp Kendall Session – Developing Student Assessment for Community Learning – June 8 12-2 p.m. Calendar Icon

Developing student assessment for community learning
Session 1: Wednesday June 8, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the President’s dining room (PDR)
This three-part workshop will guide participants in building customized, ready-to-use assessment tools for their own CEL-oriented courses. Alyssa Melby, Director of the Academic Civic Engagement Program at St. Olaf College, will guide faculty as we learn from each other about current assessment practices and the process of developing and using course-specific rubrics. to directly assess student learning in civic and intercultural outcomes. The first session will cover some basics of assessments and rubric development as well as sharing current practices and thinking about how these assessments can support other personal and professional goals (department reviews, tenure and promotion, grant seeking , etc.). The second session, conducted asynchronously, will guide participants through developing CEL assessment skills, learning about best practices to support a growth mindset for students, and using a practice rubric to “grade” real things to think about. The final session will first invite teachers to “break the rubricarchy” into a hands-on creative reconstruction of several AAC&U VALUE rubrics to develop something bespoke for their course. The group will then work collectively to map out the student reflection questions that will elicit responses that match the designed rubrics. Each session will also come with 1-2 hours of prep work required. Pay is $100 per session, with an additional $100 bonus for completing all three sessions. Hosted by Martin Lang.
