MCC will host the Instructional Technology Council's professional development audioconference entitled, "Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) in the Online and Blended Classroom," on Tuesday, March 13 from 2:00-3:00 pm in room 3-115. The presenters are: Jean Runyon, Professor and Director of the Innovative Teaching Center, and Tom Gorecki, Professor, Technical Studies Department, College of Southern Maryland.
The presenters will explore methods instructors can use in an online or blended learning environment to collect feedback, early and often, on how well their students are learning what they are being taught. CATs provide faculty and their students with information they can use to ensure teaching and learning effectiveness. Participants will distinguish between formative and summative assessments, examine commonly used CATs, and explore ways to implement CATs in online and blended courses.
