Making minor revisions to class assignments that clarify their purpose, process of completion, and criteria for evaluation “demonstrably enhances students’ success, especially that of first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented college students” (Winklemes et al. 2015)
Join us as we share research on transparent assignment design, a catered lunch, and fun chance to workshop one of your assignments with colleagues across the disciplines. The assignment template we'll discuss is simple to integrate into any class and shown to make a positive difference for students. This session will be held at the monthly meeting time of the Working Group on Active Teaching and Learning, a cohort of about 45 UO faculty who have revised courses together and continue to experiment with their teaching in conversation with one another. If you’ve ever thought of applying for the group, this would be a great introduction!
