NSH’s online Educator Series is designed for supervisors who train employees and program directors and instructors of NAACLS accredited HT/HTL programs. The course explores learning styles/differentiated instruction, how to use assessment and measurement in a professional development setting to improve learning outcomes/instruction and will deconstruct the components of a question based on Bloom's taxonomy. Attendees will be asked to bring their own assessment questions into the workshop to self-review, peer edit, and share ideas.

The course consists of three live interactive sessions conducted via Zoom. Instructors will utilize chat, polling and break out rooms. Each participant attending the course will earn 3.5 CEUs.

  • 12/7, 1pm - 2pm ET: The Basics of Differentiated Instruction and Why It Matters
  • 12/8, 1pm ET - 2:30pm ET: Writing Effective Questions
  • 12/9, 1pm - 2pm ET: Measurement and Assessment

Available Functions

  The Basics of Differentiated Instruction and Why It Matters
In this session we will briefly review traditional "lock-step" curriculum and why education has moved away from this model over the last several decades. We will then discuss various forms of instruction that, when used in combination can help create a successful heterogenous education environment.
  Writing Effective Questions
In this session we will discuss the components of a question - both for formal assessment and class discussion. We will identify the components of a good question, identify problems with weak questions, and review the various elements of Blooms taxonomy. We will then work in small groups to write questions, edit/evaluate questions written by others, and compile all questions in a shared file to be used at your institution.
  Measurement and Assessment
"Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted." In this session we will discuss measurement concepts and interpretation of gathering student data, and using test and measurement data to make decisions. This session will be largely based on the work published by James Popham. We will define tools and assessment types, discuss and practice scoring (z-scores, averages) and discuss times when deviation from defined scoring is appropriate.
