Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Theme: Creating Success When Teaching & Learning Remotely

Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed online seminar series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.


Session 5: Innovative Multimedia Assessments of Student Learning: 

Going Beyond the Usual Papers and Exams


Building off the 2019 UIUC Faculty Retreat, we learned of the importance of students being able to think critically and create imaginatively. How can students demonstrate these abilities? What are ways to design assignments that are challenging, motivating, and emotionally engaging?  Can we create authentic assessments that measure learning beyond conventional test questions and term papers? 


Given that all courses will end the fall semester being online, traditional exams may not be the most effective option. In this session, we will share the creative multimedia assignments that your colleagues developed to innovatively assess their students learning.  Handouts will include directions, resources, and rubrics for grading.


This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
