    Do I belong? Recognizing and managing impostorism

    Impostor Phenomenon (IP) is commonly experienced by individuals in academia and is characterized as an intellectual feeling of phoniness that can undermine confidence in oneself. However, many individuals do not realize how common this phenomenon is within teaching, research, and administrative roles. In this workshop, we will share some results from a campus-wide survey we recently conducted on the Impostor Phenomenon in undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, and faculty members.

    Authentic Assessment in the Pivot

    Instructors: Pierre Boulos & Jessica Raffoul
    Dates: Monday, October 5, 2020, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
    We’ll meet via Microsoft Teams to explore the principles and practice of authentic assessment and how these might be adapted in an online setting. Specifically, participants will review a course’s learning outcomes and brainstorm how we can design meaningful assessments that measure what students know, value, and can do. Participants will leave with resources with which they can re-envision their own courses. This workshop will be followed by a Drop-In Session, from 2:45 until 3:45, where instructors can discuss assessment principles and practices including assignment prompts, question design, rubrics, academic integrity, and more.
