Episode 126: Alternative Assessment: Creative Ways to Use Technology to Engage Students and Assess Learning
In episode 126 of the Lecture Breakers podcast, we're talking about alternative assessment and how to use technology in creative ways to assess student learning.
I’m excited to welcome Dr. Breanna Boppre to the show. Bree is transforming the way she thinks about assessment, and I think you’ll be inspired by the types of projects her students create to show what they’ve learned.
She discusses what alternative assessment means to her, shares a few examples of projects she uses in her courses, and offers recommendations to help you get started.
If you’re looking for new ways to engage students and integrate more creative and authentic assessments into your courses, then this is the episode for you!
