Talking About Teaching Lunch

with Sarah Frenette

Identifying desired results related to the learning goals of a course helps educators craft courses, classes, assessments and assignments that lead to understanding. In this session, we will share the desired results that we have for our own courses and work backwards to investigate actions that support reaching those outcomes. Feel free to bring one of your course descriptions or syllabi along to the workshop.
