Want to know what we’re looking for? Check out these guidelines.
All sessions should discuss innovative uses of Crowdmark for one or more of the following:
How do you grade more quickly and effectively, while giving rich feedback?
How do you help students reach learning outcomes? Are there elements of authentic assessment incorporated into your course structure?
How do you onboard, train, and maintain cohesiveness of grading teams? Is there a process that you follow to ensure consistency of grading?
How have you improved upon remote learning through assessment? Are there in-person or hybrid lessons that you’ve been able to use?
How have you improved upon in-person learning through assessment? Are there online or hybrid lessons that you’ve been able to use?
How have you improved upon hybrid learning through assessment? Are there online or in-person lessons that you’ve been able to use?
What aspects of group assessment have you found to be most beneficial? How do you use this technique throughout the term?
How do you examine data or content to discover deeper insights, make predictions, or generate recommendations to improve teaching and learning?
Are there unique ways in which you design your assessments to ensure that students perform well? What innovative assessment types have you employed in your courses?
What projects have you worked on above and beyond “traditional” teaching and learning? How have you used educational technology to further student learning?
Accessibility for underserved and marginalized students–as well as students with disabilities–is always a challenge. How have you supported students who may not fit the “traditional” model?
How do you encourage academic integrity in the classroom? Are there methods or techniques that you employ to reduce the motivation to cheat?
Sessions should be 30-60 minutes in length, including any discussion / Q&A periods.
Focus on one subject, with a single speaker. Presentation should speak specifically to one topic and/or technique.
With a panel of colleagues, address questions related to one conference topic. Panels should involve three to five panelists and a moderator.
Take participants through the process of designing and implementing a strategy. Workshops should include participant activities.
We invite you to propose a format for your session that may better suit your outcomes than the session formats suggested above.
