The key assignments are in place and mapped to student learning outcomes. Faculty have discovered the use of rubrics. Now what? This session emphasizes advancing program and department assessment activity to scale. Explore questions such as how often is an SLO assessed during the assessment cycle and how often do we measure the same SLO. Determine the length of your program’s assessment cycle, decide how many key assignments will be used in a given semester, and finally, determine the assessment work per semester over a four-year assessment cycle.

"Teaching Dickens in the Digital Age"
What do Oliver, Gradgrind, Scrooge, and Sloppy all have in common? These Dickens creations are each involved in an amazing wave of digitizing efforts taking shape across the world on university and college campuses, as well as in libraries, collections and archives. Through the sustained efforts of individuals and organizations, public as well as private, increasing amounts of Dickens-related materials finds its way online every year. In this talk sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Hood College, Professor Trevor Dodman will discuss some of the exciting ways that scholars, students and fans of Dickens are exploring the author’s works in digital formats—and how Digital Dickens projects can make a dramatic impact in the college classroom. Please bring along an electronic device and be ready to experience first-hand the joys and challenges of teaching Dickens in the Digital Age.
