ITDS Special Events

Join Us for Our Upcoming Special Events:

Assessment Practices Series


This monthly event will focus on a variety of approaches to assess student learning. How do we know if students are achieving our courses’ learning goals? What assessment practices and technologies are most effective to support student learning?


This series will include workshops, presentations and shared best practices from the University community. More details, including a full list of events, can be found on the Assessment Practices Series page.
