Assessment and Diversity
Presenter(s): Dr. Amber Martin (Department of Psychology)

It is important for institutions to address the various ways we may systematically exclude some populations of students (e.g. disabled students or students of color) from the assessment process, or in the “closing the loop” process. In this session I will present some preliminary ideas about possible “weak” points in the assessment process that may miss certain groups of students and discuss what these may mean or miss about the general health of the institution’s assessment and interpreting assessment results. I will also invite discussion of these ideas from the group. [Details...]

If you can’t teach the class in person, “Zoom” it
Presenter(s): Shiao-Chuan Kung (Center for Online Learning)

What will you do if inclement weather or a medical issue prevents you from teaching a class in person? Holding a virtual class using an online conferencing tool can be an alternative to canceling class. Zoom is a free conferencing tool that you can use to discuss a reading, lecture over slides, or solve a problem on a whiteboard. To make the session interactive, you can use text chat, screen sharing, polling, and small group breakout rooms. Teaching online is very different from teaching in person and takes preparation and practice. Join us at an online workshop session where you will learn the basics of Zoom and strategies to facilitate synchronous online classes. [Details...]

Assessment Breakfasts
We've Completed our Assessment; Have We Learned Anything?
Presenter(s): Joel Bloom (Director of Assessment);Chris Scott (School of Education) Kirsten Grant (Chemistry)

In this session, we will discuss several illustrative examples of Schools and Departments at Hunter successfully “closing the loop” – taking what they learn from assessment to improve their programs and inform their decision making. We’ll also have an open conversation on ways that participants in the session might be able to put what they’ve learned from their assessments to good use.  While the term “closing the loop” implies a return to the beginning, it’s better to think in terms of continuous improvement, informed by assessment data.
