Faculty Discussion about Teaching Science
Exams are a staple of science classes. Most exams are summative- evaluating the students on meeting learning objectives. But exams need not only be a "test". They can also be a vehicle for learning- synthesizing information in new ways or thinking about a new concept. In this Teaching Sciences Seminar, we will discuss strategies for focusing on student learning in exams, such multi-stage exams or the option to re-take certain portions. Framing the discussion will be 3 Dartmouth faculty who use these techniques in their teaching: Thalia Wheatley (PBS), Patrick Dolph, (Biology), and John Pfister (PBS). Come Join us!
