On Wednesday February 21st a group of ten dedicated instructional staff met in a half day workshop facilitated by Nancy Pitts (Educational Change Facilitator) and Linda Jack (Educational Technology & Design).

Nancy framed the aspects of designing multiple choice questions, with a focus on both the theory of design, as well as incorporating the authentic experiences and challenges experienced by participants.

After a coffee break supported by the Dean’s Office, Linda led the group in a demonstration and explanation of Best Practices in using the Brightspace Quiz tool. Each participant, using an ET&D laptop, had the opportunity to practice their understanding of the strengths and nuances of offering Multiple Choice-based quizzes. There was a mixture of theory, shared experiences and some laughs that all supported the learning in this Instructional Professional Development session.
