Storyline Articulate

Outcomes, Assessments, Objectives, & Evaluations

Working in collaboration with the Curriculum and Assessment team at a Community College, we created a tutorial for faculty members. The goal of this tutorial was to showcase possible technology solutions for online learning and explain explain to new faculty members how outcomes, assessments, objectives, evaluations, and Bloom’s Taxonomy are used.

This short video was created to help faculty members relate the idea of using a formative course “pulse check” in online settings to learning objectives and outcomes.

Tutorial Examples

Making Word Documents Accessible Tutorial

Adding Images Tutorial

These tutorials were created to help faculty in the development of their online courses at a Community College.  As we worked with faculty, we would send these tutorials as a reference guide after we trained them.

Depending on the workflow of the Subject Matter Expert, we will work together to create a calendar of due dates.  I try to be as detailed as possible so neither stakeholder forget an important aspect of the module.

Curriculum Planning Through Backwards Design

Backwards design starts with what you want the students to learn rather than the activities the students will be doing. During this collaborative session, you will take a lesson you currently teach and work with your colleagues to create measurable objectives, create an assessment to ensure that each student has reached that objective, and plan activities to use to teach those objectives. By the end, you will have an implementable lesson plant to use with your students.

MACUL Conference

  • Spark Session
  • Implementing data-based centers in the classroom

During this spark session, I presented data on the implementation of centers in my classroom.  Centers are small groups of students working collaboratively on a concept.  After about 10-12 minutes, students would move to a new center.  One of the centers would be an explanation/hands-on experiment run by the teacher.  Through the use of centers, students had a higher mastery level of concepts such as seasons and contact/non-contact forces.

Van Buren Public Schools Professional Development

  • Implementing Illuminate

Illuminate is a web-based product for teachers.  Illuminate allows teachers to give tests and have them automatically graded.  Once the data is collected, teachers can view data to identify areas where students are still struggling.  They can also organize students into groups to help with reteaching and mastery.  After being trained to use Illuminate, I presented to my peers and taught them how to access Illuminate and use the program to give tests and collect data.
