FLASH: Discussion Based Assessments: Do’s and Don’ts (3:50 pm)

Block K – October 30, 3:50 PM

FLASH: Discussion Based Assessments: Do’s and Don’ts (3:50 pm)

In this flash session, we will talk as a group about VTVLC’s discussion-based assessments. What works, and what doesn’t? We’ll share hints and information on scheduling with students, how to conduct at DBA, how to use Zoom for a DBA, and how to work with students to ensure the best DBA experience. Participants should bring their own ideas to share.
