Practicing Transparent Assignment Design: An Interactive Virtual Workshop
Tuesday, April 27th, 2021 | 3:30 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.
Event Type: Webinar
Facilitator: Mandy McGrew
Redesigning just two assignments in your course can have a big impact in your classes. Research shows that students are more likely to succeed when faculty provide them with transparent assignment descriptions. A transparent assignment includes just three parts: the purpose, the task, and the criteria. Do you have an assignment that students regularly struggle with? Has it been more difficult to get the level of work you desire from your students after moving your course online? Bring an assignment with you to this interactive webinar and you will have the opportunity to revise it applying the TILT (Transparency in Learning and Teaching) framework. Come prepared to participate! Workshop attendees will break into groups for a peer feedback session and everyone will leave with a draft of their TILTed assignment.
