- Wilson, T. B. (2013, September). Taking Students Where They’ve Never Been Before: Field Studies in Namibia. SWES Seminar Series. Marley 230.More infoThis six week field course taught by SWES Faculty emphasizes experiential learning and critical thinking for graduate and undergraduate students. Namibia has one of the greatest assortments of ecosystems in Africa ranging from desert (one of the oldest in the world) to jungle. It also has one of the lowest human population densities in the world, making it an ideal region to investigate environmental impacts as well as biological and cultural diversity. It is the first experience outside of the United States for many participants, and represents an educational milestone in their lives.Monday,

- Wilson, T. B. (2017, April). UA Learning Initiative Blog Post. Assessment Matters Newsletter.More infoI really like transparency in the way we teach students. In particular, and this relates to Zoe's post of "Why", I like to share with my classes what motivates me to teach a course: the learning outcomes. We all have them in our syllabi, but these mostly don't get revisited with the students after the first day of class. Today I dedicated part of my HNRS 170 class to sharing the learning outcomes again with my students, then reviewing which outcome we've reinforced so far with a given class activity.Now, from an assessment standpoint I don't yet have a metric to go by for evaluating this, but I believe it is a good practice for aligning where we are as a class in the semester with the syllabus, and giving the students a sense of progress. What is your perspective?
