11:04 a.m., Feb. 21, 2013--The University of Delaware Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning (CTAL) will hold a lunchtime session Monday, March 4, titled, “Are They Learning What you Think They’re Learning?” from 12:30 to 1:30 in 223 Gore Hall.

In this session, faculty will explore quick and easy ways to obtain student feedback to adjust their teaching.  These ideas will be useful for faculty who teach classes of all sizes in many different disciplines.

'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

“We are offering this session in early March because this is an ideal point in the semester to find out what is going well in a course and where students need help,” said Kathy Pusecker, director of educational assessment. “ This session will help faculty fine-tune their course midstream in a way that is manageable.”

Faculty who register for this event can bring their lunch; CTAL will provide fruit and beverages.

All faculty members are encouraged to attend. Registration can be found online.
