WHAT’S WRONG WITH EXAMS TODAY?
Too often the focus is on attaining grades rather than achieving deeper learning. This online seminar—presented by Maryellen Weimer, PhD, editor of The Teaching Professor newsletter—helps teaching faculty modify their orientation with exams to create a richer learning experience for students.
It’s Time to Restructure the Exam Experience
The foremost goal for any good teacher is to help students succeed. And just as we guide students to recognize areas that need improvement, we can adapt our own approaches to create even better learning outcomes for our classes.
By making exam preparation part of the learning process, students will achieve deep learning and desirable grades.
This online seminar is designed to help teaching faculty see exams from a new perspective. We’ll look at simple strategies faculty can use every day, whether online or in the classroom, to ensure exams are not simply perceived as grade-generating mechanisms but instead recognized as enriched learning tools that will have a significant impact on student success.
A New Approach to Learning Goals
By changing the way teaching faculty approach exams, we can influence student behavior. Instead of asking how they will get the best grade, students need to learn to rephrase their questioning to address these issues:
- “What am I going to learn about this content?”
- “What can I learn from this experience?”
The goal of this seminar is to inspire faculty to think about exams in a broader, more learning-centric way. To achieve this, participants will engage in the following activities:
- Explore ways to make exams richer learning experiences
- Design exam experiences so that they encourage the development of good study skills
- Develop strategies that encourage students to take responsibility for exam preparation and performance
Discover a more integrated approach to testing.
Following the ideas and advice provided by esteemed teaching expert Maryellen Weimer, participants will learn concrete strategies they can immediately apply to the classroom setting.
The seminar covers the following:
- Instructional strategies that promote more effective exam study skills
- Creative uses of quizzes that do more than just get students to come to class
- Exam review and debrief sessions where students engage with the content and confront the ways they are learning
This online seminar is designed for teaching faculty who are interested in gaining practical skills to improve student learning.
Participants will learn ways to modify instruction, improve quizzing methods, and engage students to achieve deeper learning.
Order today. As you learn to implement class reviews, study strategies, and exam debriefs, students will be more equipped to learn course content.
