The application deadline for the Journal Club has passed.
Understanding what our students are learning is fundamental to good teaching and lies at the heart of grading. From February to May, 2013, the Assessment Methods Journal Club will have virtual meetings once a month to discuss readings related to assessment methods. These readings will be drawn from geoscience, cognitive science, and other science education journals. To facilitate a deep exploration of this topic, we will run the meetings as a series, with participants committing to all four meetings. See the overview page
for more information, including meeting dates, times, and fees.
