Presented by Kevin Murray, Postdoctoral Fellow, Center for Teaching and Learning, Ellen Freeman, Teaching and Learning Applications Coordinator, Academic ITS

Description: Effective remote teaching calls for new approaches to assessing student learning. In this roundtable session, we will share our experiences assessing remote student learning and attempt to derive practical pedagogical strategies and lessons from those experiences. We will think together, in particular, about whether and how lessons learned in the remote context can transfer to and inform our traditional classroom teaching.
