Invention Mobs by Leeann Hunter on Prezi - 0 views

    Excellent short Prezi with 3 specific group activity examples that look at creativity, teaching failures, and cross-disciplinary research.  Each activity asks great questions of the group and individuals.  Invention Mobs: recreating creativity and collaboration in the writing classroom -- Leeann Hunter, Georgia Tech -- Roger Whitson, Emory from 2012 Computers and Writing Conference at North Carolina State University ACT 1: Playing with Others Select 2 objects in this room, on your person, or in your bag.  (60 seconds) Form groups and nominate 3 objects that don't belong together (90 seconds) Create a 4-line narrative that presents the objects to a specific audience (120 seconds) Q: How do we define creativity and why is it important?  Q: How do we define mobs and why is collaboration necessary?  ACT 2: Teaching with Others In groups of three, share a failed teaching experiment. (2 minutes) Merge into groups of six, and select three major activities destined for failure.  (3 minutes) Design a large-scale project that revisits and revises these failed teaching experiments. (5 minutes) Q: How do we cultivate creativity in the college writing class?  Q: How do we create effective teamwork structures?  ACT 3: Researching with Others Identify and pair up with your "research opposite." (2 minutes) Share current and recent research projects (3 minutes) Devise a collaborative research project that is also multimodal. (5 minutes) Q: How is interdisciplinary research creative?  Q: What are the possibilities in conducting collaborative and multimodal research?  multimodal:  WOVEN = written, oral, visual, electronic, nonverbal written / visual - document creative process with original art and blog entries oral / nonverbal - analyze and produce professional talks with "ideas worth sharing" a la TED electronic - connect collaborators via social media

Overview of Library Instruction Assessment - 0 views

  • Focus has been on us ◦ Perceptions of teaching ◦ In general, little measure of what students are actually learning / can do
  • National Survey of Student Engagement  “First-year students were asked in NSSE about the frequency with which they „worked on a paper or project that required integrating ideas or information from various sources,‟ a component of information literacy. UNCW first-year students reported a frequency that was statistically significantly below that reported by our selected peers, significantly below that reported by national master‟s universities, and significantly below that reported by all NSSE 2007 institutional participants. This information led to the development of a rubric-based assessment plan for information literacy to be implemented with the comprehensive assessment of Basic Studies beginning Fall 2009.”
  • Assessment tool selected: ◦ The American Association of Colleges and Universities‟ (AAC&U) “Information Literacy Metarubric” BasicStudies.pdf

  • (Part of Assessment Report)
  • Assessment Checklist 1. What are our research questions? (What are we trying to discover about student skills, knowledge, abilities, etc.; and what evidence do we have already?) 2. What is the expected level of performance? 3. When in the students‟ career do we assess this outcome? (entry, end of sophomore year, senior, etc.) 4. In which course(s) or venue? 5. What student work/artifacts are collected? 6. How is the student work evaluated? (criteria/rubric) 7. Who evaluates the student work? 8. Who analyzes the results? 9. Where do recommendations for action go? 10. Who takes action? (And how do we ensure changes are evidence‐based and data‐driven?) 11. How is the process documented? 12. Where is the documentation kept? 13. What is the timetable/schedule for determining which outcomes are assessed Developed by the General Education Assessment Committee for designing assessment of a learning when? outcome.
