Art History Pedagogy Caucus: Beyond the Slide Test – (Re)Assessment and Evaluation

 

Building on previous UAAC conference discussions centered on pedagogy, this session invites proposals for tenminute talks on the topic of assessment and evaluation in art history focused courses. Do you have an innovative assignment? Have you crafted a particularly accurate assessment tool? Have you found better ways to align your intended learning outcomes, method of delivery, and evaluate learning? From “flipping the classroom,” to collaborative digital projects, to courses designed to be taken outside of the classroom altogether or bridge the world of art history and studio practice, there are many ways art historians are challenging traditional assessment and evaluation methods. Our session is also looking to generate a candid conversation around how we can create more meaningful and relevant assignments in the face of heavier workloads, diverse student bodies, and increasing plagiarism. We invite and encourage proposals describing practical approaches and tools, experiments (failed and realized) and open reflective dialogue.
