Designing Senior-level Culminating Assignments that Help Students Integrate their Learning
2016 Faculty Workshop with Dr. Patricia Hutchings
In May 2016, WSU hosted a two-day workshop with Dr. Patricia Hutchings, senior scholar with the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA), and previously senior scholar and vice president at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, where she worked extensively with the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Thirty one WSU faculty participated in the workshop, representing 24 departments and 4 WSU locations.
Workshop participants shared a capstone (senior-level culminating) assignment with peers in conversations intended to help guide assignment revision as a summer follow-up activity. The assignments were from both UCORE capstones and capstones for the major.
