2015-2016 Residency Assignments

Assignment #1 - Due September 4:

During the institute, you worked on an alignment grid and/or castle-top diagram for your course. Now that your fall semester is gearing up, we ask that you update your alignment grid with specific dates, deadlines, and example assignments and assessments, and then post it for feedback from your BAT Team. Please do be sure to review your teammates' postings and provide feedback for them! We have attached a template alignment grid below in case you need it. To post your grid, locate your team in the left-hand navigation bar (under the "2. Post-Institute Assignments" tab) and follow the instructions there.

 

Assignment #2 - Due October 2:

Part I: Using the left-hand navigation bar, review each team's alignment grids. Then, provide feedback for at least 2 Scholars who are not on your team. Post your feedback by using the "Add Comment" feature.

Part II: Describe the alignment of a formative and summative assessment with one of your course objectives. So far, have the students done better - or do you predict they will do better - with that course objective as a result of having the formative and/or summative assessment? What changes do you think you need to make and/or what questions do you have?  To post your response, locate your team in the left-hand navigation bar (under the "2. Post-Institute Assignments" tab) and follow the instructions there.

 

Assignment #3 - Due November 13

Many of you have been implementing innovative and engaging activities in the classroom over the course of the Fall semester. We encourage you to think about publishing your best activities, which will not only help your professional dossier but will also help science educators outside of your cohort discover new ways to teach scientific concepts.

Part I: We ask that you watch “An insider’s guide to publishing Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education (JMBE) curriculum articles” hosted by Jean A. Cardinale, Alfred University and previous Curriculum Editor (approx. 47 minutes of presentation and 8 minutes of Q&A): http://asmeducation.adobeconnect.com/p85w7vwhd5b/

Part II: Identify an activity you could submit to JMBE or another science education journal. Draft 3-5 learning outcomes for the activity and identify possible tools that you could use to provide evidence of student learning across these outcomes. Post your activity, learning outcomes, and assessment tools to your team's page in the left-hand navigation bar (under the "2. Post-Institute Assignments" tab) for discussion. Please do continue to provide feedback for each other!

 

Assignment #4 - Due December 21

Now that the semester is coming to a close, we ask that you report out to your team on the overall implementation of your alignment grid and/or castle top - what worked and what needs improvement? What final questions do you have for your teammates? Also, take this opportunity to review the feedback left for you in the Comments section of your team's page. Please post your semester-end report by locating your team in the left-hand navigation bar (under the "2. Post-Institute Assignments" tab) and following the instructions there.

 

Assignment #5 - Due January 20

With the start of the new year, it's time to think about your next semester/course/unit. We ask that you create a new alignment grid and/or castle-top diagram for your next course/unit with specific dates, deadlines, and activities, and then post it for feedback from your team. Please do be sure to review your teammates' postings and provide feedback for them! As a reminder, I have attached a template alignment grid below in case you need it. To post your grid and feedback for others, locate your team in the left-hand navigation bar (under the "2. Post-Institute Assignments" tab) and follow the instructions there.

 

Assignment #6 - Due February 3:

We highly encourage you to present your scholarly work at the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE; asmcue.org), which will be held July 21-24, 2016 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, just after the conclusion of the mandatory Biology Scholars Capstone event. Abstracts submissions are welcome for poster presentations and Microbrew sessions. Your sixth homework assignment is to watch two webinars on how to submit abstracts for ASMCUE's poster presentations and Microbrew sessions. Whether or not you present at ASMCUE, these highly informative webinars will be useful in providing tips on how to go about sharing your scholarly work. Click on the following link and watch the two abstract “How to” webinars by Wednesday, February 3rd: http://www.biologyscholars.org/residencywebinars/. If you have any questions about ASMCUE or the abstract submission process, please contact asmcue@asmusa.org.

 

Assignment #7 - Due April 1

As the spring semester winds down, we ask that you report out to your team on the overall implementation of your second alignment grid and/or castle top - what worked and what needs improvement? What final questions do you have for your teammates? Also, take this opportunity to review the feedback and conversations in the Comments section of your team's page. Please post your semester-end report by locating your team in the left-hand navigation bar (under the "2. Post-Institute Assignments" tab) and following the instructions there.
