Friday SLO Talk, May 12, 2023, Authentically Teaching and Learning Math: Navigating Challenges and Opportunities

In the age of AI and AB 1705, teaching and learning are changing rapidly, and math is no exception. Join us as we talk about adapting to this new reality.
We’ll explore how AI impacts student learning and include teaching stories and strategies from California community college math faculty. We’ll also discuss the importance of focusing on student learning over test performance and teaching responsible AI use. We’ll share both successes and failures relating to academic integrity, student-centered classrooms, and learning in the age of AI and AB 1705.
Let’s talk about how to empower students to take ownership of their learning and to use technology to their advantage. So, come join us for an engaging and practical discussion on how to navigate the challenges and opportunities of learning math with today’s students. Whether you’re a student, educator, or just curious about the future of education, this talk is for you!

Friday SLO Talk, May 5, 2023 SLOs for Deep, Lasting Learning and Navigating the Implications of Generative Artificial Intelligence in Teaching and Learning

Generative artificial intelligence is a rapidly growing technology with the potential to revolutionize the way we teach and learn. However, as with any new technology, it is important to consider the implications it may have on education. We explore the impact of generative AI on education, specifically in the fields of computer science, information technology, and the humanities. The session will begin with an overview of generative AI and how it works, followed by a discussion on the potential implications it may have on the way we teach and learn. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their own experiences with the technology and brainstorm ways it can be used in their own educational contexts.

Friday SLO Talk, April 14, 2023 Canvas and outcomes assessment

Please join us for a presentation by the “Canvas & SLO Assessment” subgroup – a “spin-off” working group/learning community of the Friday SLO Talks! Members from 2-year and 4-year institutions will share the collaborative work they’ve done to develop their use of Canvas Outcomes for SLO assessment on their campuses. They will demonstrate how to set up Canvas for SLO assessment and build a data dashboard using PowerBI. They will present and discuss with the audience various considerations regarding Canvas Outcomes adoption, setting up Canvas Outcomes to ensure consistent data that can be made actionable via data dashboards, and moving toward disaggregating data for DEI analyses as a next step.
The session will address and include the following:
• Collaborations and developing internal and external partnerships
• Considerations for adoption
• Architecture for mapping and creating consistent data
• Canvas Outcomes setup demonstration with Q&A
• Faculty resources to support buy-in and participation
• Formatting Canvas exported data to build data dashboards
• PowerBI data dashboard demonstration with Q&A
• Leveraging Canvas for other SLO assessments: Student Affairs, co-curricular programs, integrated assessment across programs/divisions
