The Online Faculty Learning Community (OFALC) is a cooperative group of faculty members who are interested in enhancing their online or blended learning courses, through active discussions of online teaching pedagogy, survey on best practices, and application of effective strategies to facilitate students’ success in their respective online or hybrid learning courses.
The Online Faculty Learning Community would be specifically beneficial for the faculty members who have recently developed a new or redesigned online course, and currently teaching the course this semester or plan to teach next semester. The program is intended to introduce an array of skills and strategies for online teaching.
Session Summary - Developing Meaningful Self-Assessment
In this presentation, Dr. Troutman-Jordan will share her experience incorporating Quality Matters standards into a hybrid course, Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Practicum. Specifically, she will focus on weekly self-assessments that were built into the course to allow students to gauge their own learning and progress. Examples of self-assessment quizzes will be shared, how she explained the inclusion of these self-assessments to students, and how the participants of the Learning Community can utilize the self-assessments to enhance the in-person component of the course.
