March 26, 2010 – 11:30am – 12:30pm
6201 Microbial Sciences Building (Faculty Conference Room
1550 Linden Drive

Join Jon Roll, Faculty Associate, Department of Bacteriology, for a candid conversation about his journey to develop authentic assessment into the curriculum. In fermentation sciences at UW-Madison, Roll’s students design and brew their own beer, which is evaluated by a panel of industry experts at the end of the semester. You will hear how he integrates the department’s educational goals with undergraduate careers and industry needs, followed by a group discussion about integrating broader UW educational goals with vocational needs and applying similar assessment to your own curriculum.

Teaching Adventures and Outcomes is a monthly forum for sharing the experience and results of efforts in teaching and learning among faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students. This forum is a collaborative effort of DoIT Academic Technology, CALS Council on Teaching and Learning, Center for Biology Education, Delta Program in Research, Teaching and Learning, Engineering Learning Center, UW Teaching Academy and the Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching.
