Assignments and Exams that Promote Curiosity and Learning
Monday, April 13, 3:00-4:30 (LIS 131)
Assignments and exams are a necessary part of education that we have come to take for granted, largely because they provide the basis for a student's grade. But assignments and exams provide a more important opportunity: to promote students' curiosity and self-reflective learning. This session will examine the characteristics and appropriate sequencing of intellectually stimulating assignments/exams. Participants will view sample assignments and exams (including some of your own we hope) for analysis and discussion.
