Session Description

Instructors choose various teaching methodologies, ranging from classics like essays and group projects to use of new technologies to create interactive websites. Teaching methodologies the presenter has used in teaching a MOOC and in teaching face-to-face include use of social media, lecture capture, podcasts, and facilitated discussion forums. Assessing student use of these materials and learning outcomes achieved by use of those materials can be eye-opening for instructors, as it becomes clear that our teaching tools are not always used in the way we expect. How can we more routinely assess student achievement to refine teaching methodologies employed?
