Promoting and Assessing Affective Learning √ §
How can we help students develop empathy and resilience?
Tuesday, November 5, 2019 · Noon - 1:30 PM
Many of our aspirations for student learning go beyond content and skill acquisition—we also want to help students develop qualities such as empathy, resilience, persistence, and social and personal responsibility. How do we foster such affective learning in our students, and how can we assess our success? When applied learning experiences such as internships, community-based learning and research, and undergraduate research are high quality, they can cultivate such attributes in our students. In this discussion, members of the Applied Learning Experience workgroup on campus will discuss their work in identifying, cultivating, acknowledging, and assessing affective competencies (partially funded through a Hrabowski Innovation Fund award). We invite participants to share their experiences and resources.
