Active Learning Series - Co-sponsored by CSE Active Learning Committee & CETL :: Student Exam Questions – an Effective Way to get the Students to Practice 

Friday, April 13, 2018 :: 3:30-4:30 PM

Intended Audience: Faculty & GTA's

Facilitated By: Anja Mueller, Chemistry

Usually homework is the only way to get students to practice difficult concepts – and that only if they get graded. But grading homework every week in large classes becomes difficult. Our research found that student exam questions are often more effective than homework to get students to practice. For each concept, all students write an exam question. For each concept, one file for the questions and one for the answers will be created, which then will be made available to the students. A portion of the exams will then be student questions. This workshop will use TopHat to create an exam with student exam questions to demonstrate problems and solutions. This will be combined with pedagogy data and current research data. Please bring a mobile device (smart phone, tablet, or laptop) so that you can participate in the interactive portion of the session. Light refreshments will be provided.
