As educators, we are interested in designing hands-on, minds-on learning through well-designed, problem-based learning tasks. But how do we make that happen in ways that make the data from student performances useful for us and our students in determining nextsteps in the learning process? In this make it/take it session, after abrief introduction to evidence-centered design and practical tools for using this approach todesign tasks, participants will collaborate to design problem-based learning tasks. Participants are encouraged to bring materials so application of skills introduced can lead to development of tasks for actual use with current/future students.
