Workshop: How Can Students Generate Evidence of Learning in Flexed & Remote Settings?

Jul 20 • 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

For many teachers and students in higher education, hybrid-flexible and online learning are new experiences. In this event, Helen Chen (Stanford University), Kevin Kelly (San Francisco State University), and Gail Matthews-DeNatale (Northeastern University) will discuss how your students can generate and show evidence of learning through ePortfolio approaches–even if you don’t use an ePortfolio tool.

Participants will consider:

  • how to help students document and reflect on their learning in disciplines that are challenging to accomplish remotely, such as STEM, the arts, or hands-on skills courses
  • how to maintain learning equity in a world where some students and even some faculty do not have access to adequate devices, internet, software, or training for successful remote learning
  • how to create multiple pathways for students to create and demonstrate evidence of learning in remote settings (also known as Universal Design for Learning)

Helen, Kevin, and Gail are all board members with the Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEBL).

This session is open to all members of the Northeastern University community. Please use your Northeastern email when registering. You cannot be enrolled in the session without Northeastern credentials.
