CTE has temporarily relocated to East Campus 3 (EC3). We will continue to offer our regular programs and services from our temporary offices and workshop locations. 

Waterloo Assessment Institute

Offered as a pilot program in April 2018, the Waterloo Assessment Institute (WAI) focuses on the assignment as a means of assessing student learning. Through peer feedback and guided work time, this intensive two-day retreat at the Delta Hotel Waterloo helps individuals and program teams to redesign key assignments in their courses. Save the date for the next WAI: April 11 and 12, 2019.

By the end of the Institute, participants will leave with

  • a redesigned assignment based on two rounds of feedback from peers and consultation with teaching and learning consultants.
  • a refined rubric or set of criteria with which to assess the assignment in their local context.

Whether you are an individual seeking to improve an assignment, or a team seeking to link an assignment or assignments "horizontally" (across courses in a term) or "vertically" (across courses in different terms or years), the WAI provides you with space, time, expertise, and peer feedback. Space is limited so please apply by December 14, 2018!
