The elevator in Environment 1 (EV1) is shut down for maintenance from April 23 to June 5, 2018. During this time, the only way to access CTE’s offices on the third floor of EV1 is by the stairs. We are happy to arrange an alternative meeting place for CTE meetings if requested. For directions to our workshop spaces (EV1 241 and 242) via the elevator in EV3, please visit our Location page. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

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
