dB-SERC lunch discussion 07-09-2018: Using TopHat to personalize student learning and expand the scientific skillset in a large biological science classroom
Discussion leader: Dr. Candice Damiani, biological sciences
When: Monday July 9, 2018 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 321 Allen Hall
During the lunch discussion, Dr. Candice Damiani from the biological sciences department will discuss her project “Using TopHat to personalize student learning and expand the scientific skillset in a large biological science classroom” for which she received a dB-SERC course transformation award. Personalized learning is rarely attained in large, introductory biological science courses. Although this is often an environment where personalized learning is most needed due to the diverse student population, the size of the course, the logistics of providing individualized content and assessment, and the grading demands make personalized learning difficult to achieve. Dr. Damiani will incorporate personalized learning in a large enrollment biology course through the use of TopHat, an in-class, online learning platform. TopHat will allow for personalized student skill assessment and skill building as it allows for secure, digital tests that students can take on their own devices during class. The professor will be able to identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses and homework assignments will be created via TopHat that focus on enhancing students’ scientific skills. The purpose of the lunch discussion is to provide feedback on the project and encourage an interchange of ideas.
