This workshop is geared toward those graduate students planning to defend a thesis or dissertation in December or May. Library staff members will lead the workshop informing you of the requirements for submitting your final work. They will discuss how and where to submit as well as where your electronic work will be available for the world to view and download! They will also discuss how to apply for an embargo of your work if necessary. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about title pages, signatures, abstracts, print binding, costs, editing, and general guidelines.

This is a group viewing of the Magna Webinar described as follows:

Learning goals and objectives are where the real work of teaching is accomplished. Meaningful and measurable learning goals are tied to student success. When course goals aren't linked to the desired outcomes, then student success is greatly compromised. Learn how to target your teaching and make an impact on student learning by designing specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely goals before you assign that reading, assignment, project, or test. Discover what makes a SMART teaching goal and how to revise any goals that don't make the grade. Finally, this seminar will demonstrate how to purposely cater appropriate materials, activities, assignments, and assessments to best promote the achievement of your set goals.

LEARNING GOALS

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the "levels of learning" your course requires
  • Classify and refine the course outcomes/goals/objectives in your own program, course, or unit
  • Apply Bloom's Taxonomy to select appropriate verbs for developing goals and objectives
  • Compare and contrast poorly designed and well-designed goals and objectives
  • Evaluate ways to share course goals and objectives with learners

HERE'S WHAT WE'LL COVER

  • Outcomes, goals, and objectives
  • Levels of Learning
  • Using Bloom's Revised Taxonomy to construct learning objectives
  • Characteristics of well-designed learning objectives
  • The Extreme Goal Makeover
  • Beginning and ending your course with goals and objectives

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This seminar will benefit:

  • Faculty
  • Curriculum and instruction supervisors and/or directors
  • Academic affairs leaders
  • Assessment offices and leaders
  • Accreditation leaders

The deadline to register for this event is Friday, December 13, 2019 at 1:00pm.
