CCE: Assessing Interdisciplinarity through Writing

"Assessing Interdisciplinarity through Writing" addresses how to assess student’s integration skills. This workshop focuses on creating writing assignments and rubrics that will enable instructors to evaluate students’ integration skills. Some discussion will also be given to the use of student writing to assess learning outcomes at both the course and general program level.

Participation is determined by successful application. Faculty participants will receive a $500 stipend.
