This workshop begins with a question: How can faculty create assignments that work most effectively both to help students learn and to enable them to demonstrate their achievement?
To begin to answer that question, we will discuss strategies for enhancing student agency in creating assignments and an adaptation of the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) framework for designing assignment prompts. Bring an existing assignment that you can discuss with colleagues to make it more transparent and to open up the assignment to greater student agency.
This webinar is based on the new title, Advancing Assessment for Student Success: Supporting Learning by Creating Connections Across Assessment, Teaching, Curriculum, and Cocurriculum in Collaboration With Our Colleagues and Our Students, coming in June 2021.
