Are you frustrated with your current grading system and interested in learning about alternative approaches? Let’s dive into Clark & Talbert’s book, Grading for Growth and apply their ideas to our own courses!
In this series, we will be both reading and applying the ideas to our courses. We’ll start by exploring alternative grading systems and then spend several sessions utilizing the book’s Workbook for Alternative Grading to design our own. These sessions will include lots of working and peer feedback time. View the tentative agenda here.
Meets seven (7) times this semester (9/19, 10/3, 10/17, 10/31, 11/7, 11/28 & 12/5) on Tuesdays from 1:00-3:00 in ZSR 665 (Faculty Commons Classroom inside the Faculty Commons space in ZSR Wilson Wing). We will provide the book for the first 12 registrants. The focus will be both learning and designing an alternative grading system for your own course, with working time and peer feedback, so we encourage you to sign up only if you are able to fully participate throughout the series.
