After implementing scientific teaching principles, how do instructors know whether their approaches are working? During this webinar, Jenny Knight, Associate Professor of Biology-MCD Instruction at the University of Colorado Boulder, will lead a discussion on how instructors can evaluate the impacts of their scientific teaching efforts. Jenny is the author of many publications on measuring student understanding. Her work focuses on clicker discussions, concept tests and other assessments in the undergraduate science classroom.
