Ever wonder how you can get your students to develop as reflective thinkers? Participants in this self-paced workshop will learn where, when, and how to implement reflection as a means of self-assessment and move away from traditional assessment and grading techniques. Each of these low-prep, high impact strategies will be shared in a hands-on and engaging way. Do not expect a lecture, but do be prepared to participate from the comfort of your own home and on your own time. Many strategies to optimize positive feedback while still focusing on individual and group progress will be shared. The reality is this: while assessment gets all the press, it is feedback for learning that can truly transform a student’s learning. Join Dr. Brandy Hempen to find out how to increase the success of your students this year and forevermore. Bonus: There is also an embedded slow twitter chat from July 20- August 20 where participants can share ideas related to the workshop with each other and the instructor.
