Student Learning Objectives for Geometry for Teachers Courses
Summary: Over the last several years, the Teaching GeT Working Group members of the GeT: The Pencil community have been engaged in writing a set of essential Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) for Geometry for Teachers (GeT) courses. In this seminar, members of this working group will provide a historical lens on the development of the SLOs and will discuss the current living document, which includes an open forum for comments and feedback related to the ten SLOs and narratives. We will demonstrate how to use the GeT website and forums. We hope the forums will facilitate long-term discussions around the SLOs; to that end, we will encourage participants in this seminar to help start the conversations about the SLOs there.
If you are planning to attend this seminar, we encourage you to read the SLOs and sign up for forum access in advance at https://getapencil.org/student-learning-objectives/. If you have any trouble registering for the forums, please contact us for technical assistance.
Duration: 60 minutes
Format: Online seminar via Zoom web meeting software with questions and discussion. Detailed instructions for joining the seminar will be emailed to registered participants.
