Such planning can help improve student understanding of your expectations, student achievement of your learning objectives, and can also set the stage for a smoother assessment process. This webinar will review methods for designing or refining assignments to target specific objectives, for communicating critical assignment components to students, and for scaffolding assignments to help students achieve intended learning outcomes.

Wednesday, July 20 | Online - Adobe Connect | 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Register » Organizer(s): Terri Tarr and Presenter(s): James Gregory, Douglas Jerolimov
Using rubrics increases grading transparency, consistency, and efficiency while encouraging students to link assignments to learning objectives and become more critical assessors of their own work. However, many faculty feel that creating a rubric and using it effectively requires time and effort that they cannot spare. In this online mini-workshop, participants will learn some basic principles for quickly creating effective rubrics that will make assessing student work faster, more consistent, and more rewarding.

Teaching@IUPUI: Creating a Syllabus
Wednesday, July 27 | Online - Adobe Connect | 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Register » Organizer(s): Terri Tarr and Presenter(s): James Gregory, Terri Tarr
A syllabus is often the first impression that students form of a course, and it serves both faculty and student as a guide to and contract for the semester. A well designed and personalized syllabus can help faculty set the proper tone while simultaneously helping them avoid having to repeatedly answer basic student questions about expectations, policies, and deadlines. By examining syllabi from various disciplines, this online mini-workshop will offer tips and considerations for effective syllabus design, show example syllabi, and include time for questions and discussion.
