Description: Are you and your students able to monitor progress towards achieving learning outcomes in the classroom in real time? What do you do with the information you gather about student understanding? In this highly interactive, two-hour webinar, participants will explore the difference between formative and summative assessments, collaborate with peers to practice and share learning assessment techniques used in the classroom, and discuss ways to adjust teaching and learning based on the results.

A significant amount of time will be spent collaborating in virtual breakout rooms with peers from across the Washington. For best use of the breakouts, participants should join individually from a computer with a working microphone and camera. They are encouraged to meet with campus colleagues after the webinar to discuss what they have learned. The webinar will be recorded and available for later viewing individually or in small groups.

Description: In recent years, a new article or book has appeared every few weeks on the importance of fostering growth mindsets, resilience, and belonging in today’s students. How can college educators translate this research into practice? What difference do these psychological factors make in college math classrooms anyway? In this webcast, participants will explore strategies to foster growth mindsets, build resilience, and increase belonging in mathematics/quantitative reasoning classrooms. Participants will also learn about currently available resources for addressing psychological factors in course design and daily instruction.
