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.

This webinar will provide strategies for teaching large classes with a learning-centered approach. Large classes present challenges for instructors and learners alike, and many instructors struggle with how to scale up the active learning pedagogy that is effective in their smaller classes. Participants will consider the literature on effective teaching practices for large classes and identify solutions to the challenges discussed. The facilitators will present examples from the literature, as well as lessons learned from their own teaching and from working with other faculty who have faced similar challenges and worked to overcome them.
