Interdisciplinary Research Roundtable: Tuning the Core
Elaine Carey, Tracey Anne Cooper, Elizabeth Herbin-Triant, Philip Misevich, and Alejandro Quintana, St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Tuning offers a powerful, faculty-centered way to harmonize the usually fragmented conversation about assessment and to make the conversation useful in teaching and explaining the value of a particular field of study. Since 2012, the History Department has “tuned” the core competencies, BA, and MA degree creating assessment tools, rubrics, sample syllabi, and guidelines as well as conducting focus groups with students and potential employers to gain feedback. In this presentation, the members of the SJU TuningProject will discuss tuning from the core class and how that process changed their teaching methods and students’ learning.
