Creating ILOs using Bloom's Taxonomy Aug 15

My goal in creating the peer assessments is to encourage your active engagement with the course material allowing for helpful feedback and discussion on items that do not lend themselves to multiple choice question assessments. Also, while it may seem daunting, the notion of a ‘randomly assigned’ grader has the potential to be very fruitful. If you as a learner put in the effort on the peer assessments, then your peers will too. Given that this is a community of individuals interested in Health Professions and the education of professionals, I trust that most of you will be fair and thoughtful in your support of one another’s learning. I recognize that some individuals will be limited by time or availability and so I don’t believe it would be wise to ask you each to do a multitude of peer assessments. Your work will be assessed by a minimum of three peers, and you in turn will assess the work of three peers. This allows for multiple sampling opportunities, as well as a variety of feedback. As I mention in an upcoming lecture video, no assessment is perfect, but we as teachers and learners do the best we can!

Peer Grading
After submitting your work, you will get the opportunity to assess the work of three of your peers. Your own work will also be assessed by your peers and feedback will be returned to you. Grading will be binary: you complete the work or you don't. Since you've worked hard on your submission and would like your peers to do a good job of assessing your content, please take your time and do a good job of assessing your peer's efforts in return. Once you have reviewed the work of three of your peers, you will then have the opportunity to reflect upon and reassess your own submission.

Self Assessment
After you provide feedback to your peers in the peer assessment section, you will be asked to re-visit and reflect on the ILOs you created as part of the original assignment. This self-assessment allows you the opportunity to reflect upon your own work and integrate new understandings incorporated from the feedback of your peers. This is a great opportunity to apply your metacognitive practices and skills, and will not specifically be graded.

Honor Code
Please remember that you have agreed to the Honor Code, and your submission should be entirely yours. Our definition of plagiarism follows from standard literature: passing off someone else's work as your own, whether from your peer or Wikipedia. If you need to quote material, remember to cite your source, for example: "But, as expressed by Spinoza, all things excellent are as difficult as they are rare (Baruch Spinoza, "Ethica" source: thinkexist.com)."

Your Assignment
For each of the following scenarios, create three learning objectives using Bloom’s Taxonomy. Please construct your statements with action verbs that reflect the level of learning you would want

what 3 (three) learning outcomes would you expect your learners to achieve? 4. what 3 (three) learning outcomes would you expect them to achieve? 2. . At the completion of the course. At the completion of their training. You are a program director who is training individuals to act as birth attendants outside of a hospital setting. You have been asked to teach first year health professions’ students how to take a history from a patient. You are teaching a Humanism in Medicine course that is focused on mitigating health care disparities and improving access to care. 3. At the completion of their course. Please construct your statements with action verbs that reflect the level of learning you would want your students to achieve: 1. what 3 (three) learning outcomes would you expect your students to achieve.your students to achieve: Your Assignment For each of the following scenarios. create three learning objectives using Bloom’s Taxonomy.
