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.

Part Time Faculty Note: This workshop is uncompensated. Part-time faculty who participate will not be compensated but should still enter participation hours in the time management system.

Do your students come to class not having done the reading? Do they fail to turn in simple assignments? Do they seem disengaged? How can we get our students to care about our classes as much as we do? In this workshop, we will examine a few theories of motivation that may help explain some of these student behaviors. Then we will work together to brainstorm ways we can use this new knowledge to bring out the best in our students.
