This workshop has been cancelled due to the Corona virus and is in the process of being moved to an asynchronous “self-enrollment” format that will be available 24/7 indefinitely.  I will post the link to this Canvas site once all materials have been upload and PowerPoint slides have been recorded. Please contact me if you have questions, would like a phone consultation, or experience difficulties at connies@uwm.edu.

This session is applicable to all course formats: Face-to-face, online, or blended.

Between our own course changes, inheriting a course from others, or changing program needs, a course can survive through many revisions. Many of these changes to outcomes, assignments, rubrics, topics, and assessments, activities, and readings can increase the quality of the course. However, do all of the parts “talk to one another” in a way that ensures all of the course outcomes “are coming out” and all of the learning activities are linked to outcomes? This Alignment Diagnostic Tool will provide a quick way to identify any “orphan” course assignments or activities, or outcomes that have been abandoned.  Tightening alignment can make learning more visible and transparent and your teaching more intentional. Bring a course syllabus along to practice!
