Equitable and Inclusive Assessment, Learning Activities, and Feedback
Friday, April 1, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pmRegistration is required
All students can succeed with intentionally designed assessments, learning activities, and feedback. Assessment and learning activities are the core of teaching and if they are not equitable, we are not providing equitable learning opportunities for the students. We need to provide students with opportunities to reflect on their progress and the support they need to succeed. During this session, you will examine your current assessment strategies to see how they impact the learning of students from diverse backgrounds. You will also learn how to adjust your assessment strategies and learning activities to make them more equitable and transparent from a student success perspective. Registration is required.
In this workshop series, Foundations of Equitable and Inclusive Teaching, you will learn to tweak or overhaul your course design by intentionally reflecting on your teaching practice with student diversity in mind. Each aspect of course design, from your assessment methods to selection of instructional materials, to classroom climate, may privilege some students while disadvantaging others or even harming them. Our goal is to minimize the harm to the students and maximize student learning and belongingness.
This workshop falls under the AAC&U High-Impact Educational Practice of Diversity/Global Learning.
