The second edition of Effective Grading—the book that has become a classic in the field—provides a proven hands-on guide for evaluating student work and offers an in-depth examination of the link between teaching and grading. Authors Barbara E. Walvoord and Virginia Johnson Anderson explain that grades are not isolated artifacts but part of a process that, when integrated with course objectives, provides rich information about student learning, as well as being a tool for learning itself. The authors show how the grading process can be used for broader assessment objectives, such as curriculum and institutional assessment. This thoroughly revised and updated edition includes a wealth of new material including: Expanded integration of the use of technology and online teaching A sample syllabus with goals, outcomes, and criteria for student work New developments in assessment for grant-funded projects Additional information on grading group work, portfolios, and service-learning experiences New strategies for aligning tests and assignments with learning goals Current thought on assessment in departments and general education, using classroom work for program assessments, and using assessment data systematically to "close the loop" Material on using the best of classroom assessment to foster institutional assessment New case examples from colleges and universities, including community colleges "When the first edition of Effective Grading came out, it quickly became the go-to book on evaluating student learning. This second edition, especially with its extension into evaluating the learning goals of departments and general education programs, will make it even more valuable for everyone working to improve teaching and learning in higher education." —L. Dee Fink, author, Creating Significant Learning Experiences "Informed by encounters with hundreds of faculty in their workshops, these two accomplished teachers, assessors, and faculty developers have created another essential text. Current faculty, as well as graduate students who aspire to teach in college, will carry this edition in a briefcase for quick reference to scores of examples of classroom teaching and assessment techniques and ways to use students' classroom work in demonstrating departmental and institutional effectiveness." —Trudy W. Banta, author, Designing Effective Assessment

This book introduces community college faculty and faculty developers to the use of faculty learning communities (FLCs) as a means for faculty themselves to investigate and surmount student learning problems they encounter in their classrooms, and as an effective and low-cost strategy for faculty developers working with few resources to stimulate innovative teaching that leads to student persistence and improved learning outcomes.

Faculty developers at many two-year colleges still rely solely on the one-day workshop model that, while useful, rarely results in sustained student-centred changes in pedagogy or the curriculum, and may not be practicable for the growing cohort of part-time faculty members.

By linking work in the classroom with scholarship and reflection, FLCs provide participants with a sense of renewed engagement and stimulate collegial exploration of ways to achieve educational excellence. FLCs are usually faculty-instigated and cross-disciplinary, and comprise groups of six to fifteen faculty that work collaboratively through regular meetings over an extended period of time to promote research and an exchange of experiences, foster community, and develop the scholarship of teaching. FLCs alleviate burnout and isolation, promote the development, testing, and peer review of new classroom strategies or technologies, and lead to the reenergising and professionalisation of teachers.

This book introduces the reader to FLCs and to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, offering examples of application in two-year colleges. Individual chapters describe, among others, an FLC set up to support course redesign; an “Adjunct Connectivity FLC” to integrate part-time faculty within a department and collaborate on the curriculum; a cross-disciplinary FLC to promote student self-regulated learning, and improve academic performance and persistence; a critical thinking FLC that sought to define critical thinking in separate disciplines, examine interdisciplinary cross-over of critical thinking, and measure critical thinking more accurately; an FLC that researched the transfer of learning and developed strategies to promote students’ application of their learning across courses and beyond the classroom. Each chapter describes the formation of its FLC, the processes it engaged in, what worked and did not, and the outcomes achieved.

Wenn es Ihnen wie den meisten Ihrer Kollegen geht, erhalten Sie als Dozent oder Doktorand keine Grundausbildung in Didaktik und Pädagogik für Ihre Hochschullehre. Es scheint als ob die Fähigkeit, Studierende zu unterrichten und sie in ihrem Lernen zu fördern, eine Selbstverständlichkeit wäre. Das ist natürlich falsch, und das Ziel dieses Buch ist es, diese Lücke zu füllen und Sie in Ihrer Lehre zu unterstützen. Forschungen über die Aufmerksamkeit, das Gedächtnis und die Motivation haben es ermöglicht, Lehrmethoden zu entwickeln, die das Verstehen und Lernen der Studierenden maximieren. Diese Lehrmethoden integrieren unter anderem das "aktive Lernen", das sich durch eine aktive Teilnahme der Studierenden am Lernprozess auszeichnet. Pragmatisch und praktisch werden in diesem Buch die didaktischen Methoden vorgestellt, die "funktionieren". Sie erfahren, wie Sie diese in großen Veranstaltungen (Vorlesungen) und kleinen Veranstaltungen (Seminare, Übungen) anwenden können. Dieses Buch enthält viele praktische und konkrete Hinweise für die Lehre, behandelt aber auch andere für Sie wichtige Themen wie Prüfungen, das "Schwätzen", die Motivation der Studierenden, und Zeitmanagement. Wenn Sie Lehrender an Universitäten oder Fachhochschulen sind, dann ist dieses Buch unentbehrlich für Sie. Aber auch jene, die in der Erwachsenenbildung tätig sind, werden die vielen pädagogischen Hinweise nützlich finden. Nach dem Lesen dieses Buches werden Sie nicht nur besser unterrichten, Sie werden auch mehr Spaß an Ihrem Beruf haben.

Dee Fink's CreatingSignificant Learning Experiences, higher education hascontinued to move in two opposite directions: more institutionsencourage faculty to focus on research, obtaining grants, andpublishing, while accreditation agencies, policy-makers, andstudents themselves emphasize the need for greater attention to thequality of teaching and learning. Now the author has updated his bestselling classic, providingbusy faculty with invaluable conceptual and procedural tools forinstructional design. Step by step, Fink shows how to use ataxonomy of significant learning and systematically combine thebest research-based practices for learning-centered teaching with ateaching strategy in a way that results in powerful learningexperiences. This edition addresses new research on how people learn, activelearning, and student engagement; includes illustrative examplesfrom online teaching; and reports on the effectiveness of Fink'stime-tested model.
