Upcoming Events

Designing Transparent Assignments to Promote Student Success

Thursday, November 30, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

A nationally-recognized model called Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) provides a structure for writing assignments that are more understandable by students, and research has shown “transparent” assignments lead to increased student confidence, sense of belonging, and retention—particularly in students from underrepresented populations. In this workshop, we will teach you how to write transparent assignments, and you will leave with at least one rewritten assignment ready to try out in your classes.

Creating a Graphic Syllabus

Friday, December 1, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Your syllabus can be used to communicate a wide variety of information such as course and university policies, assignments, materials, location, and schedule. A graphic syllabus can also be used to communicate the connections between the material. Students often view courses as a list of loosely related content while as the disciplinary expert you understand the breadth and depth of the content and relationships between topics. In this session, participants will learn how modeling expert thinking can assist novice learners, begin to organize a course conceptually rather than according to the organization of the textbook, and explore how a graphic syllabus can be used both as a learning tool and a organizational tool. Participants should identify 1 course to focus on during the workshop.
