    Learning Objectives

    • Participates will be able to:

    • Use the principles of backward design to align learning outcomes with both learning activities/formative assessments and summative assessments
    • Develop/modify learning materials to engage students in deliberate practice
    • Use Bloom’s Taxonomy to evaluate assessments

    Readjusting Our View of the Classroom:

    In the classroom:

    • Critical thinking, problem-solving, cognitively demanding material
    • Active learning
    • Formative assessment

    Out of the classroom:

    • Pre: Low cognitive demand
    • Post: Practice w/ class content
    • Online quizzes
    • Online tutorials
    • Homework

    Session Slides:
