Creating Effective Rubrics to Help Students Learn and Save You Time

Event Date & Time

  • September 4, 2019
    9:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Description

Well-developed rubrics can help instructors communicate their expectations to students and students may learn important skills to reflect on their own learning and monitor their progress. While a large number of rubrics is freely available on-line for a wide range of learning activities: writings, term projects, video presentation, team work, etc., modifications are often needed to fit the needs of each course, instructor, and the students.

In this workshop, together with each other, we will:
– Review learning goals of the targeted assignment
– Determine what evidences are needed to demonstrate learning
– Review and revise existing rubrics
– Develop strategies to promote communication among instructors, TAs, and students
– Develop strategies to help students learn how to learn using the rubrics
