CTAAR will be hosting a new workshop, "Updating your Teaching Portfolio for Emergency Remote Teaching" on April 29th from 10-11 am. 

As you consider your teaching philosophy and components of your teaching portfolio, you may want to update your materials to reflect the accommodations that were necessary for the move to Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT). You can add a section to your teaching portfolio to include ideas in these areas:

  • What goals do you have for your students' learning in your ERT courses?
  • How are you assessing your students' learning in your ERT courses?
  • What unique challenges/opportunities did the shift to ERT create for you?
  • Were you able to teach students with diverse identities and backgrounds?
  • How are you assessing the effectiveness of your teaching?
  • What went well?

Please RSVP to receive materials and the WebEx connection details:  https://ctaar.rutgers.edu/workshops/register/index.php?ws=1034

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Chris at chris.drue@rutgers.edu.

Based on the feedback from our "Options for Remote Exams" workshop, CTAAR is offering a presentation on how to write exam questions that measure student learning on Wednesday, Apr 22, 2020 3:00-4:00 pm. We will cover what makes good multiple choice questions, how to develop essay questions, and how to write rubrics to evaluate open ended questions. The workshop will provide special focus on challenges associated with the remote learning environment, such as developing questions appropriate for an "open book" environment.

 We are also planning workshops on how to create exams in your individual learning management systems -- stay tuned for information on how to attend these future workshops.
