LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down a student’s computer when used for administering a test through HuskyCT. Monitor is an additional feature that uses a student’s webcam to record them taking their test, which provides a means to review the student’s testing environment. When taking a test using LockDown Browser, students are unable to print, copy, go to other websites, access other applications, or close a test until it is submitted for grading, and Monitor creates a video record of the time they spent taking the test. This session will cover the use of LockDown Browser and Monitor for tests, quizzes, and exams in your course, including recommended settings and best practices.

Where Do Students Need more Preparation in Order to Be Successful in your Class?

Participants will leave with specific strategies for identifying students who may have gaps in their knowledge in key areas, specifically areas in which they are less than fully prepared to be successful, as well as strategies for bringing the students up to speed.

We will discuss topics such as:
• Turn it around: Consider how an unprepared or underprepared student feels
• Assessing how prepared students are (quick, ungraded pretest, short writing assignment, small group then whole group discussion…)
• Determining what needs to be done to bring them “up to speed”
• Your responsibility, theirs, some of each?
• The role of feedback. Types of feedback. The importance of feedback- read and comment upon rough drafts, have checkpoints for projects and actually check them
• Freshmen in particular
• On campus sources- the Writing Center, tutoring services, Q center, achieve.uconn.edu, the library…
• Working in small groups, peer editing, peer feedback in general…
• Study groups for test prep; groups that meet regularly throughout the semester
• Consider giving work done early in the semester less value in grading: 1st test- 20%, 2nd test 30%, Final 40%, quizzes, HW, class participation 10%- something like that.

Critical Thinking Activities and Assignments

Teaching talks are interactive sessions where you can meet other instructors to discuss a particular theme or topic related to teaching, mentoring, and course design. Unlike webinars, teaching talks are heavily shaped by participation, though they are facilitated by CETL staff and faculty affiliates who offer tools, resources, and prompts for reflection and discussion. Some topics we may consider include:

  • How do you incorporate critical thinking into your course design?
  • How do you build it into class time when class time already seems too short to cover all the content you want to cover?
  • What are some critical literacy activities you have implemented in your classes? How did you think about assessment of them?
  • How might critical pedagogies inform your teaching?

In this teaching talk we will share experiences, challenges, and activities that can be modified to fit even a small amount of class time.

Using Data Visualization Platform to Engage Your Students

Contemporary students are curious and tech-savvy. They are excited to explore real-world application of the textbook material, and work with data because “Big Data” is a buzz word in their realm. They are also “visual” learners, so the creation of charts, graphs, and maps will entice them to look deeper into the subject matter, ask questions, analyze, and discuss. This workshop will teach the instructors how to engage our students with data visualization.

Description:
In my 1-hour presentation, I will share my application exercises (AE) that use Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) database. Those exercises can be utilized by any instructor and any student from anywhere in the world: FRED portal is free; it is current; it has a lot of data about a lot of things. I will showcase several examples of data acquisition, data mapping, and assessment instruments. I will guide the participants through one example of obtaining data, saving it, creating a dashboard, sharing it through HuskyCT, and creating assessment vehicles for it on HuskyCT.

Participants will:
1. Practice using the Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) interface
2. Experience a learning activity using FRED
3. Discuss ways to engage students based on the model activity
4. Discuss student assessment strategies based on the model activity
5. Discuss applicability of FRED in other disciplinary settings
