Building an Equitable Classroom Community with CATs – One Day Workshop!

Jen Anderson leading a session of the Transparent and Relevant strand

Are you looking for innovative ways to ensure all your students are learning what you hope they are learning in your class? Would you like some tips for enhancing the energy and building community in your classroom?

CATs may be just the thing for you! Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) are simple, non-graded, sometimes anonymous, in-class activities that provide you with meaningful data to assess student learning. CATs are a fantastic and easy way to discover what your students already know about your course content, what they want to know, what they don’t understand, as well as what attitudes and opinions they hold about the class. At the same time, how you approach these formative assessments can build an energizing and equitable learning environment. CATs work in on ground, online, and hybrid classes across all disciplines. Join Jen Anderson, Archana Alwar and your colleagues for a day practicing different ways to use CATs in our classes. We will spend time learning about a variety of techniques, choosing ones that can work in our own classes, and practicing them with our colleagues. You will walk away with fresh ideas and strategies you can begin using with your students right away.
