Transparent Tuesdays at 2 p.m.

A transparent teaching framework can equitably promote all college students’ success. Recent research indicates that transparently designed assignments benefit college students’ learning significantly – especially that of underserved students (Winkelmes et. al. Peer Review, Winter/Spring 2016). Here’s a Transparent Assignment Template, along with some examples of assignments before and after using the template: (Example A, Example B, Example C, Example D). 

Get some feedback on making your own assignments more transparent. Upload any assignments you’d like to discuss with colleagues into this folder and connect here the 2nd Tuesday of each month. 

I look forward to our conversation.
