Pedagogical Sound Bite: The Power of Transparent Assignment Design
You must login to your account to view this media.
This workshop presents an overview of Transparency in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (TILT), an award-winning, scholarly project focused on improving students' learning experiences.Â Evidence from a national study shows that when faculty implement small changes to enhance transparency to the design of even just two assignments, there are statistically significant benefits for all students and even larger gains for first-generation students, low-income students, and students of color (Winkelmes et al., 2016).
In this workshop, weâ€™ll share examples and a simple framework for transparent assignment designâ€”Purpose, Task, Criteria. Youâ€™ll be able to start the groundwork to â€œTILTâ€ two of your own assignments.
