As part-time faculty members we are often very busy with multiple ongoing tasks including full-time jobs, families, and researchÑit can be overwhelming. Using rubrics to grade student work can save you lots of time and will clarify your expectations to your students. In this interactive and productive one-hour workshop you will learn about the 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 an actual rubric you can use. NOTE: Virtual--does not meet face to face.

As part-time instructors, we sometimes need courage (and encouragement) to keep us going. "This book is for teachers who have good days and bad, and whose bad days bring the suffering that comes only from something one loves. It is for teachers who refuse to harden their hearts, because they love learners, learning, and the teaching life." - Parker J. Palmer (introduction)
Please join me as we discuss how Palmer's book can be applied in our everyday lives as part-time faculty members.
