Powering Up with Transparent Assignment Design

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

The research is in: having a clear purpose, task, and criteria for assignments positively impacts student learning. Yet, assignments too often miss their mark because students misunderstand what’s being asked of them (Winkelmes, 2016). During this session, you’ll engage with peers to evaluate samples and then review and re-fashion one of your own assignments. You will receive pointers and feedback to take with you into the semester. Please bring a laptop and two copies of an assignment to this session.

Please register here.
