Teaching: Research Paper Alternatives

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

Research papers are an important tool for promoting inquiry, but they are often solitary projects, can be intimidating, and pose special challenges in Fall 2020. This workshop explores how alternative assignments such as simulations, research-based creative projects, and multimedia artifacts can promote active learning and help students effectively find, evaluate, use, cite, and present information. We’ll practice designing alternative assignments and discuss how to assess these projects.

Please register here.

This workshop is part of the Teaching for Engagement series for GW faculty members seeking strategies to enhance their courses and increase student engagement both in-person and virtually. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. Other workshops this Fall 2020 are Teaching: Building Community in Blended and Online CoursesTeaching: Facilitating Online Discussions, and Teaching: Inclusive Strategies for Engaging All Students. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.
