Powering Up Assignments Through Transparent Design Online

Monday, January 01 | 12:00AM–12:00AM PT
Session Type: Breakout Session
We will discuss the benefits to of having faculty use a Transparent Assignment Rubric to peer review their online assignments. Recognizing that taking assignments online requires faculty to be even clearer about the purpose, tasks, and assessment guidelines than with in-person courses, we have introduced transparency into online faculty development efforts. We will share the transparency rubric, national research into its impact, and how it can be used together with faculty peer review to revitalize assignments and student persistence.

Outcomes: Identify the transparency rubric's components and the reasons each is important * Understand the demonstrated benefits to student learning from transparent design * Explore how peer review works in concert with the transparency rubric to improve faculty development around online assignment creation
