As part-time faculty members we are often very busy with multiple ongoing tasks including full-time jobs, families, and research--it can be overwhelming. Using rubrics to grade student work can save you time and will clarify your expectations to your students. In this interactive and productive one-hour workshop you will learn about different types of rubrics, how to create one, and how to use it to clarify and speed up the grading process. Bring the description of one of your assignments and leave with the beginnings of an actual rubric you can use.

"One cannot expect positive results from an educational . . . program which fails to respect the particular view of the world held by the people." Join us for a discussion of Paulo Freire's classic book, The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and contemplate how the world view of our students influences the way they receive and perceive their education.

"What's the Trouble with Grades?" webinar:

Location:

What's the trouble with grades? Walvoord and Anderson (2010) state, when we talk about grades, educators have student learning most in mind. However, our students may have different perspectives about grades. Participants in this webinar will discuss grading processes and products that spur communication with students. We will identify research-based tools and strategies to motivate and engage students in grading practices to improve teaching and learning in our classrooms.
