Information for

Waterloo Assessment Institute

Offered for the first time April 9th and 10th 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.

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 1st 2017!

    Apply for the WAI as a team or as an individual
