In 2013, the three facilitators participated in the Certificate Program in University Teaching and Learning (CPUTL) where they were tasked with developing a workshop on teaching assessment. Individual motivations for attending the CPUTL and expectations for the program differed significantly between the three facilitators. Learning to navigate and appreciate these differences helped to develop relationships that evolved from collegial, to collaborative, to friends. After successfully graduating from the CPUTL, the facilitators have continued to work together and to offer their workshop on assessment for a number of different audiences. In this interactive presentation, participants have the opportunity to experience a “meta-workshop” that provides insight into how the facilitators learned to work together and balance each other’s strengths. Facilitators will lead the learner-focused workshop designed to encourage participants to take control of assessment practices, and frame it with reflections on how the workshop has been fine-tuned through an on-going practice of assessment, reflection, and collaboration. Offering a behind-the-scenes look at how the workshop was developed will encourage participants to appreciate how different approaches and expectations between colleagues can lead to successful collaboration. Facilitators are keen to share how their positive experience in the CPUTL has influenced their teaching and learning both within and outside of academia. In doing so, the facilitators also seek to engage participants in a discussion of how they have put the skills learned in programs focused on scholarly teaching and learning, like the CPUTL, into practice to take advantage of personal, professional, and scholarly opportunities.
