Please join our UVA Engineering faculty presenting at the UVA Center for Teaching Excellence’s eighth annual Innovations in Pedagogy Summit. Exploring the theme “Fostering Curiosity, Wonder and Creativity for All Students” with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, the online summit features a mix of interactive synchronous sessions and recorded presentations.

All faculty, students and staff are encouraged to attend. Below is a schedule for UVA Engineering faculty presentations:

Wednesday, May 12
2:30-3:15 p.m.
Synchronous workshop: Assessing Learning Outcomes in Courses with No “Right Answer”
Rider Foley and Sean Ferguson, Department of Engineering and Society

ABSTRACT: Educators, administrators and students can struggle to assess learning outcomes from liberal arts and humanities courses. Often student-generated projects or reports are used to showcase specific skills and competencies developed within a specific course. Project assessments certainly may demonstrate learning, but do these assessments capture the pre-existing knowledge students bring into the learning space? Might the student have acquired all or some of the skills and competencies prior to enrolling in the course? This interactive workshop will demonstrate one technique to address these concerns.

Thursday, May 13
Noon-1 p.m.
Lunch panel: Andres Clarens, Department of Engineering Systems and Environment, joins Rose Buckelew, Department of Sociology and Center for Teaching Excellence faculty fellow, and Jamie Jirout, School of Education and Human Development, Department of Leadership, Foundations and Policy

DISCUSSION: The Innovations in Pedagogy Summit lunch panel will enable participants to ask questions and hear reflections from UVA instructors about their diverse experiences with teaching and/or scholarship related to fostering curiosity, discovery and wonder during the past academic year.
