While it is essential that faculty integrate assessment strategies to document student learning outcomes, creating assignments that are simultaneously meaningful and interesting is a challenge. Students’ time and attention are strongly tied to the graded components of a course; as such, assignments must engage students in a meaningful manner. Since online courses tend to be text-heavy, instructors need to look beyond traditional written assignments to incorporate innovative, creative ways to motivate and monitor student learning. Rather than viewing assignments as a simple opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge, engaging assignments should be incorporated as an important component of the holistic learning experience. Combining creative and engaging assignments not only allows faculty to assess student learning but simultaneously fosters student satisfaction and engagement. This webinar will highlight innovative ways to make traditional written assignments more engaging, explore opportunities for integrating technology into learning activities, and examines strategies for capitalizing on the unique opportunities available in the online classroom.
