Creating a Community by Engaging Learners
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Using national, state, and various professional associations' standards, the teacher edu- cation faculty within the College of Education at Grand Valley State University designed a course, Introduction to Learning and Assessment which embraces the best practices of engaged learning by creating a community of learners. The course has evolved into one that actively engages students through: learning teams; problem-based learning (individual/team projects); interactive discussions (synchronous/asynchronous); and the modeling/implemen- tation of various formative assessment strategies.
