Instructors and educators need to use critical judgment in selecting, using and creating course materials in the classroom. This course will review the selection of media and technology as well as examine basic copyright issues and considerations when selecting classroom materials. A framework will be established for the creation of and components of properly constructed assignments and tests, which is fundamental in the teaching-learning process. Specific to performance-based or task-based assessments, instructors will learn how to properly construct grading and marking schemes for a rubric, rating scale and checklist. Upon completion of the course content, instructors will apply these conceptual frameworks immediately into the creation of a written assessment and a task-based assessment for a course.
