Active Learning Lab (ALL) Series

Active Learning Lab or ALL workshop series is participant-driven, hands-on experience for users who want to learn how to more efficiently implement assessment processes and solutions on their institutions.

ALL offers all-inclusive sessions on selected topics where attendees can learn and build solutions specific to their institution or program via a backward-design approach. Using the Edcamp Model “unconference” delivery, these active learning experiences focus on what partners need to know and want to put into action on their institutions tomorrow.

A Tale of Two Cousins— Intersecting the Art of Feedback and Assessment Inspired by VALUE Rubrics

Providing clear feedback is a known contributor to positively impacting student achievement. Yet, finding the right instruments and processes to give quality feedback in real-time can be daunting. Learn from assessment professionals from Thomas Jefferson University and Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) who have designed and digitized processes at their institutions, to quantify qualitative assessment across disciplines. A common component of these assessment practices is the use of AAC&U VALUE Rubrics. The VALUE Rubrics served as a launching point to delineate relevant criteria for use in multiple disciplines. LLCC has created a high impact practices (HIPs) curriculum that centers on a VALUE-rubric inspired HIPs instrument, while Jefferson has used VALUE rubrics to develop evaluation tools for effective feedback in Design and Design Thinking courses. Both institutions have moved their assessment processes to their online assessment management platform to enable learners to see and respond to feedback in real-time.
