Assessment is not only about testing knowledge and content but supporting students in developing learning strategies. CTSI’s January and February workshops highlight alternative approaches that integrate assessment into learning and personal reflection. Topics include Communicating with Your Students: Effective Oral and Written Feedback, Assembling Your Teaching Dossier (both a workshop and a clinic) and The Challenge of Teaching Effective Scholarly Writing. We’re also pleased to present two workshops with David DiBattista, Professor and 3M National Teaching Fellow (2007), Department of Psychology, Brock University. Professor DiBattista has published several articles on the use of multiple-choice questions (in The Journal of Experimental Education and Canadian Journal of Higher Education, among others) and regularly presents on his research. He will be joining us on February 7th to lead two workshops: Getting the Most Out of Multiple-choice Questions and From Principles to Practice: Examining the Structure and Content of Multiple-choice Items
