Broad and Specialized Learning (BSL) Critical Thinking (CT) Cultural and Civic Engagement (CCE) Effective Communication (EC) Integrating Technologies (IT)
Bigger sample sizes are more accurate › Focused on collecting CCE artifacts Focus on CT › Held several workshops/sessions › Discussed how we teach CT and how we can teach it more effectively That was cool…let’s do it again…Step 1
Purpose: 1) Familiarize yourself with the CSLO rubrics Think of them as a resource 2) Effective teaching often involves discussion with colleagues. 3) Understand how grading and CSLO assessment can differ.
Get in groups of 3. Each group must include someone outside of your area. Review the assignment and brochure. Individually assess using the IT or EC rubric. › Window side: IT Door side: EC Discuss the scores as a group and come to consensus. Are the scores similar or not? Why or why not? Was this a good artifact for this CSLO? If time, assess using the other rubric.
