April was an exciting and busy month for CTE. We were able to offer some of our Signature Annual Events in person after so long!
Waterloo Assessment Institute – April 12- 13, 2023. Over a two-day intensive retreat, the Waterloo Assessment Institute (WAI) helps individuals or program teams redesign key assignments in their courses through peer feedback, expert consultation, and guided work time. WAI provides space, time, expertise, and peer feedback. Michele Ogrodnik (Kinesiology and Health Sciences) participated in the WAI this year and shared her three favorite elements of the WAI.
- Having dedicated, protected time to work on the assessment.
- Having peers to brainstorm with, who offered different ideas and perspectives.
- Having folks from CTE available for consultations, to focus my ideas into specific approaches.
We hope you’ll consider joining us next year!
Our PebblePad Showcase Event was held on April 26th, 2023 and featured UW instructors and a first year co-op student discussing how PebblePad has been used to support teaching and learning. In addition, Shane Sutherland, CEO and Founder of PebblePad shared how PebblePad can support learning from the moment they join us at UW through to graduation and throughout their careers after they graduate. Here are the recordings from the presentations.
