Information-Wise: Designing instructions to educate informed learners | 21 January 2020 | 13.30 – 15.30

Information is everywhere around us: from (digital) books and articles to social media notifications and videos. Students should be able to deal effectively and critically with the information jungle to thrive in our problem based learning (or project centred learning) setting at UM. When researching for and writing paper assignments, as well as preparing and studying for classes, students independently find, evaluate, use, and present information – in other words apply information literacy skills. As a university our role is to guide and train students in information skills throughout their academic journey. For more information and registration, see here.

Team-based learning approaches as a multi-variable tool | 21 January 2020 | 15.00 – 17.00

Do you want to motivate your students to study more regularly and be better prepared not only for their final exam? Then this workshop offers you the chance to explore the pros and cons of the team-based learning (TBL) format. For more information and registration, see here.

Workshop Grade Analysis | 22 January 2020 | 10.00 – 12.00

Making fair judgments and setting fair assessments of student performance is a challenging task for teaching staff. From clearly communicated learning goals, grading criteria, answer keys, assessment plans and rubrics, teaching staff employ a variety of tools to ensure their assessments are transparent, valid and reliable. But what happens after all grading has been completed? Are the scores higher than expected, are more students failing than usual, should certain patterns in the data instantly ring alarm bells or can we really read anything into this at all? In this workshop we will discuss real cases and go through examples to give you an idea of what you can glean from such data and become better informed about the quality of assessment in your departments.

Fostering students’ employability, wellbeing and resilience | 23 January 2020 | 13.30 – 15.30

Are you responsible for advising, mentoring or supervising individual students? Do you always know the best place for you or your students to turn to for extra support in developing student employability, wellbeing and resilience skills? In this interactive workshop we will introduce you to UM Career Services & UM Psychologists and their services for students who can help directly with these aspects and more.
