Pedagogical Approaches: Transparent Assignment Design
August 24 @ 2:15 pm - 2:45 pmFree
This workshop presents an overview of Transparency in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (TILT), an award-winning, scholarly project focused on improving students’ learning experiences. Evidence from a national study shows that when faculty implement small changes to enhance transparency to the design of even just two assignments, there are statistically significant benefits for all students and even larger gains for first-generation students, low-income students, and students of color (Winkelmes et al., 2016).
In this workshop, we’ll share examples and a simple framework for transparent assignment design—Purpose, Task, Criteria. You’ll be able to start the groundwork to “TILT” two of your own assignments.
Facilitated by Jen Garrett-Ostermiller and Susanmarie Harrington. (This workshop covers the same material as the workshop presented in May’s Pivotal Pedagogy event.)
