This Week's Message

Throughout the numerous discussions and training sessions for the new IDEA student rating of instruction (SRI), we have talked at length about the seemingly endless resources available through the IDEA Center's extensive web site. However, as many of us have probably experienced when trying to gather new information through the internet, sometimes being told to "just go to the web site" doesn't feel all that informative.

So at this week's Friday Conversation, those of us who have been facilitating the transition to the IDEA SRI will present a more detailed tour through the specific resources available through the IDEA web site to guide course design and the formative use your instructional reports. These resources explore the 12 outcomes that faculty select and students assess in more depth, the relationships between specific teaching practices and student progress along those outcomes, and the ways in which students' experiences of those teaching practices influence student motivation and learning.

Please bring your questions, experiences, frustrations, and discoveries to share as we endeavor to grow together in our commitment to teaching.
