10:00 am - 11:30 am
Chanin (B126 HW)
Assessment Breakfasts While academic departments and programs at Hunter College have been conducting assessment of student learning outcomes (SLOs) in their undergraduate programs for some time, assessment of learning outcomes within our graduate programs is far less widespread as well as less developed. The co-presenters will begin with some background on assessment of student learning, and will discuss similarities and differences between SLOs – and SLO assessment – between graduate and undergraduate programs. The workshop will include an interactive activity in which participants work together to review their current graduate outcomes and assessment plans or activities, and help identify ways in which they can be enhanced or improved. The workshop is open to all interested but particularly directed at assessment coordinators, chairs, and faculty in departments with graduate programs. [Details...]

Small Teaching Part II: Lightning Talks on Teaching and Learning
Presenter(s): Acert Steering Committee and Other Faculty and Staff Volunteers

As introduced at the first Lunchtime Seminar on October 2nd, James Lang’s 2016 book Small Teaching is based on the idea that simple, small changes to our classroom practices and course designs could make large, positive differences in student achievement and overall teaching effectiveness. After a brief summary of Lang’s book and his blog posts in The Chronicle of Higher Education, volunteers will present a variety of short talks about teaching and learning based on Lang's ideas or any other brief topic relevant to teaching at Hunter. The talks will be short, lightning talks (3 minutes each) which will allow presenters and participants plenty of time to discuss other ideas that they can try in their courses today, tomorrow, or next semester.
