Location: Graduate Student Center 305
Summary: As TAs, teachers, and instructors, we would all like to see our students learn content, acquire skills, and develop more fully as critical thinkers. This workshop investigates how we can help our students reach these goals by planning assignments that build on each other throughout a semester. Participants will discuss: What kinds of assignments will best foster and gauge these skills, and how can designing sequences of assignments across a semester build on previously acquired skills while setting the foundation for new skills to be learned? We will also consider how to assess students’ progress and give them feedback along the way. This workshop will be a collaborative conversation, designed to help attendees develop concrete outlines for courses that they are currently teaching or will teach in the future.
All graduate students are welcome.
This workshop counts toward the CTL certificate.
