This fall, please join us as we kick off our next phase of faculty development Lunch & Learns with Thinking Outside of the Box to Assess Learning! During this interactive session, we will explore new ways to think about assessment and how to manage potential impacts on faculty workloads.

Hear from two faculty members, Dr. Ted Hoch and Prof. David Miller, on how they have reframed the use of objective testing and incorporated project-based learning into their own courses. Whether you teach online, hybrid, flipped, or face-to-face, all Mason faculty and GTA/GRAs are welcome!

Date: Wednesday, September 23
Time: 12:00-1:30pm
Location: Research Hall 163

Light refreshments provided. Feel free to bring your own lunch!
Space is limited, RSVP here!
