Your feedback on student work is vital in helping students learn to think critically. How can you make sure the feedback you’re providing is effective? How can you be sure that students will use your feedback?

In this first of a two-part series, join Paulette Swartzfager from the University Writing Center and Paul Tymann from the Department of Computer Science in a discussion of how to assess and articulate what we value, and how rubrics can help. We will discuss how you can effectively apply rubrics and what value they bring to the educational process for both faculty and students.  Participants will be encouraged to share their assessment challenges and participate in a rubric-design activity.

Part Two of this workshop happens November 28, when we come back together (and welcome additional participants) to discuss rubrics that we have customized or created and how we might best use these rubrics with students. Here is the registration link for Part Two:
