Go2K: Implementing Universal Design to Support Your Campus’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Efforts

June 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Research indicates that students direct their time and attention toward course activities that directly impact their grade. As such, it is essential that learning objectives and grading rubrics are clearly aligned to ensure students focus on the aspects of learning deemed most important. While higher-order learning objectives (i.e., analysis, synthesis, evaluation) are frequently the goal of a learning experience, grading rubrics often tend to focus on lower level learning objectives (i.e., understanding and application) and assignment guidelines (i.e., length, style, format, etc) that are easier to assess. While rubrics provide an efficient means for faculty to improve student learning, facilitate communication with students, and enhance academic quality, the value of a rubric rests on its alignment with the targeted course objectives. Participants will explore various types of rubrics and learn how to design rubrics targeting higher order thinking skills.  Source: https://www.go2knowledge.org/
