    You’ve created your objectives and your rubrics…Now what?  This workshop will discuss how to move from the design phase to the implementation phase of an assessment plan.  We will discuss trade-offs associated with different methods of analysis both from a pedagogical and a logistical component.  We will address issues such as:  (i) how to assess using an essay versus multiple choice format (ii) possible technology/software (AEFIS, Waypoint, BBLearn etc.) that could facilitate assessment.  The workshop will include a demonstration of how to begin to use some of this technology.

  • Integrating the DSLPs into Your Curriculum

    Drexel University’s Criminal Justice program recently assumed new leadership and is evolving into a more interdisciplinary academic unit. This created an ideal time to introduce a new pedagogical initiative that reflects integration of the Drexel Student Learning Priorities and programmatic goals. The iPad will serve as a tool to support faculty and students both inside and outside the classroom, allowing for the seamless integration of multiple domains of the college experience.  This presentation will outline the process of iPad implementation. Drexel’s Criminal Justice program’s ultimate goal with the iPad initiative is to socialize students to using a digital workspace in ways that enhance their learning processes, outcomes, and objectives. We hope to move beyond the point where the iPad is itself an innovation to one where the iPad allows students to be innovative in their pursuit and production of knowledge.

    During this session, we will discuss how to create the appropriate interactive environment to facilitate this process of curriculum design. We will also discuss the use of course assessment data to give feedback and refine broader objectives that are aligned in part to the course level student outcomes. The use of the AEFIS knowledge management system as a tool to support curriculum design, mapping, assessment and evaluation in order to create adaptive and agile curriculum designs will be examined.  Curricula are complex systems of courses and other activities with significant dependencies and interactions. In this presentation, Don McEachron will discuss the methodology used by the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems to develop a learning indicator-driven alignment and integration of courses into a competency-based curriculum. This is an iterative process involving both program designers and instructional faculty. At the instructor level, placing a course within the context of a developmentally appropriate curriculum requires an understanding of how to create and align course level student learning outcomes. At the program design level, it is critical to devise a knowledge management system that builds and reinforces learning through appropriately timed and spaced experiences. The result is a significant design problem that operates on multiple cognitive levels requiring considerable patience and teamwork.
