Small Steps to Big Impact: Assignment Descriptions that Work
September 20, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
One of the keys to preparing students for success on course assignments is helping them (and ourselves!) understand what the assignment actually requires of them. This means having a description that clearly communicates the purpose of the assignment, the skills and knowledge students will need to use, the steps they will need to take to complete the assignment, and the criteria for success. In this 60-minute workshop, you will begin working with a transparent assignment design template to help you communicate your course assignments more clearly. You will leave with a concrete strategy for creating more effective assignment descriptions that will lead to better student work.
