Teachers Talking - February 28

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 (Last Year)

Topic: student misuse of online sources on homework. In many disciplines, homework is one of the critical ways that students learn course material. With the increased sophistication and support provided by textbook publishers, questions have arisen for instructors who traditionally assign homework problems from textbooks. How does an instructor best navigate through courses in which students can easily look up the answers to all of the homework in their textbook? Do online answer keys provide support or are they crutches for student learning? Are students able to use these to help them check answers after they are done with their assignments without falling into a “cheating” trap - and potential honor code violations? Session facilitated by Tom Huber (Physics and Faculty Associate of Undergraduate Research). Program runs 11:30 am and again at 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns Buffet, meet in St. Peter Room.
