"Cool Class" creative ideas for encouraging and evaluating student learning in online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses
Concurrent Session 2
A “Cool Classes Feature” by the EKU Center for Academic Creativity and learner feedback provide a scaffolding for this session encouraging and evaluating student learning. Our time together provides participants with creative ideas and applications in course design, content selection, application, assessment, evaluation, feedback, and community engagement.
According to Greenberg and Hibbert’s (2020) article appearing in the Academy of Management’s Journal of Learning and Education, “scholars are predicting this may be the ‘crucible’ moment when business schools have the opportunity to reinvent the educational environment for our students.” As we’ve learned during COVID-19, key components of any course include student learning outcome development, assessment, and evaluation occurring over the lifecycle of the course. Content offered in this workshop originates from the belief that each course is a “learning laboratory” providing students, faculty members, and contributing community stakeholders with opportunities for enhancing student learning. Organized using feedback received by learners, the presentation applies creative ideas grounded in theory by a former Senior Associate Provost for Student Affairs and faculty member with an Ed.D from Vanderbilt’s Peabody School of Education and Human Development and a DBA from the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business. Using a “Cool Classes Feature,” (https://fctl.eku.edu/cool-classes-may-2022) by EKU's Center for Academic Creativity and student feedback as a scaffolding for the presentation. Ideas and applications in course design, content selection, application, assessment, evaluation, incorporating feedback, and community engagement will be featured as contributions for a upcoming book entitled, Creating and Scaling Excellent Learning Within the Disciplines.
