Workshop on Rubrics 3/14/2012

April 01, 2012 | 1 Minute Read

To all instructors and TAs, onsite and online, CTLT has prepared a "Teaching Toolkit" workshop series to be held once a month in room W2033 at Bloomberg from 12:15 until 1:15. Our first workshop, "Evolution of Grading Rubrics" will be next Wednesday, the 14th. 

Studies have shown that rubrics can provide an effective, efficient, equitable assessment method that can be understood and applied by both students and (across multiple) instructors. 

(Allen, & Knight, 2009 http://academics.georgiasouthern.edu/ijsotl/v3n2/articles/PDFs/Article_AllenKnight.pdf ) If you use rubrics, hate rubrics, or are anywhere inbetween, we'd love for you to come and participate in this short brown-bag session. Feel free to bring materials from courses you'd like to work on, or nothing at all. 

Want to know a little more about rubrics before coming? This site provides a nice introduction, including examples and templates: http://health.usf.edu/publichealth/eta/Rubric_Tutorial/

Some future topics include: creating a quality syllabus, VoiceThread, how to create good quiz questions, assessments, and various other topics and tools. 

We look forward to seeing you there.
