Creating Supplemental Instructional Resources to Facilitate Student Learning and How to Cultivate a Culture of Assessment at DMU
Creating Supplemental Instructional Resources to Facilitate Student Learning
Leslie Wimsatt, PhD
Associate Dean for Academic Assessment, Quality and Development, Academic Affairs, Des Moines University
A variety of supplemental instructional resources can be used to facilitate student learning and encourage student development of self-directed and lifelong learning skills. However, time constraints often limit the opportunity for faculty to extend their awareness of the breadth of instructional resources implemented across professional health sciences programs to enhance student success.
This facilitated discussion will offer faculty the opportunity to
- explore current practices in the field.
- share techniques implemented within classrooms here at DMU.
