Excellence in teaching: Supporting graduate student instructors

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2018-11-12 17:00
Rubenstein Library 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)
West Campus

Presenters: Dr. Francisco Ramos, Assistant Dean for Assessment and Evaluation, the Graduate School and Dr. Hugh Crumley, Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs, the Graduate School

Trinity College and the Graduate School are deeply committed to the professional development of graduate students as instructors.  Our academic departments share this commitment, and often they request additional guidance to (a) structure graduate student skills development and (b) to assess the degree to which graduate students are developing as effective teachers. This introductory session explores such questions as:

  • What are your learning outcomes for graduate student instructors?  
  • What are some useful training models for new graduate student instructors?
  • How might a graduate student instructor self-assess his or her teaching?  
  • What are the most effective ways of delivering feedback to graduate students so that they can use it to improve their practice?  

This session is part of the monthly Assessment Roundtable organized by the Trinity College Office of Assessment. 

A light lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP in advance.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-10-31 19:00
SSRI-Gross Hall 270
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.
