Who Are Our “Customers” Now and in the Future?

9 05 2014

Jim Seeland shared this article with me with the following note (and permission to post to our FLC blog)–

“This message is a good one for anybody but, as I read through it, I was struck by how pertinent it is for UAS faculty and staff.   Being able to relate to folks across several generations is critical to good communication and, of course, good customer service and getting a grasp on development of new coursework and delivery methods.   It’s not earth-shattering news I suppose – well written though.”

Jim adds to check out the statistics in the article with the population differences between the Boomer and GenX generations. Rather staggering, if not alarming! Check out the article in question. I found it very timely and interesting. Thanks Jim for sharing!

We’ve added a new category to our web-based resources and included the content below. Find these resources and more on our web-based resources page.

Professor Dancelot and the Perils of a Misaligned Course

No one would really teach a dance class this way, would they? This video takes a humorous look at what can go wrong when a course’s learning activities do not align with the intended outcomes and assessment. Although this is an exaggerated example, it reminds us to look at the courses we teach to see if any of the elements are out of alignment.

Assessment & Instructional Alignment – An Online Tutorial for Faculty

Learning assessment is more than testing students and assigning grades. It is a system that provides feedback about student learning. This tutorial introduces an assessment approach using the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. Using the taxonomy can improve your assessment system and improve student learning by aligning course objectives, activities and assessments with each other. In this course you’ll learn how to:

  • Write observable learning objectives.
  • Choose learning activities that support your learning objectives.
  • Choose assessments that match your activities and objectives.
  • Use a taxonomy to align learning objectives, activities and assessments.
