Workshop your assignments in New Orleans, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016

  • 1.  Workshop your assignments in New Orleans, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016

    Posted 11-11-2015 04:12:00 PM

    I'm passing along an invitation from the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment, an organization (based at Univ. of Illinois) that is also working on Tuning nationwide. These events are great opportunities for faculty to come together to discuss teaching and contribute to the growing online library of assignments from many disciplines. Note: "The project will pay travel and onsite costs and a $500 honorarium when the assignment has been completed and successfully submitted and accepted into the library." I've observed one of these, and heartily recommend participating if you can.

    Please forward as you see fit. Sorry for the late notice. Application deadline is November 15.
