In this webinar, we will discuss how we can grade student work and give feedback that they can use to improve their performance in class. This webinar is geared toward part-time faculty who have a limited amount of time to spend on their courses, but all faculty can benefit from thinking critically and reflectively about their grading practices. Topics that will be covered include rubrics, checklists, minimal marking, and targeted feedback and how to apply them in all disciplines.

Held on Mon. April 1 and Tue. April 2, this Teaching Academy will introduce you to research on student learning, information processing and skill development, and to teaching strategies tailored to foster deep lasting learning in your students. Rather than simply listening to presenters, the sessions will be very interactive, and there will be time during the two days dedicated to apply the theories and research to your own courses.

Some of the topics discussed will include:

  • Student's Prior Knowledge
  • Information Processing and Knowledge Organization
  • Student Motivation
  • Practice and Feedback
  • Student Development
  • Course Climate
  • Metacognition

Metacognition is a big word for a simple concept: thinking about our thinking. As professionals, we are constantly monitoring what is being asked of us, thinking about how we will accomplish the tasks at hand, and considering how we can improve the way we do things. However, this is a challenge for many college students. In this workshop, we will discuss metacognitive strategies you can teach your students to help them be successful—while still covering your course content.

When we assign students a project or activity, we often take for granted that they will understand what we are asking them to do and why. Students do not always have the skills and ability to determine this, though, which is why writing assignments with a clear purpose, that explains the task in full, and provides the criteria on which students will be evaluated is so important. This webinar will explore the TiLT framework for assignment creation. Bring an assignment you currently use in one of your classes to study and revise throughout the session.
