Event Date & Time
In this workshop, we will show TAs how to support evaluation work in a Community Engaged Learning course. We will walk them through a set of guidelines to conceptualize, implement and evaluate students’ community engaged learning (CEL) in courses. With the use of different interactive activities, we will help TAs to get a better understanding of how to play with course goals, learning objectives, and assessment criteria in order to design/find the most appropriate assessment tools. We will also introduce a range of CEL assessment tools developed by the Centre for Community Engaged Learning.
By the end of this session, you will be able to:
- See the complexity and challenges of a CEL course assessment
- Identify different types of assessment
- Support faculty members with a range of assessment tools
The TA Institute is open to all undergraduate TAs, graduate students who are interested in teaching, and all graduate student TAs. This session is not open to general undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, or faculty.
- Shadi Mehrabi, PhD, is a Community Engaged Learning Officer at the Centre for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL) at UBC
