FLO MicroCourse: Rubrics

Our FLO MicroCourses are designed to focus on specific topics and learning needs while also developing digital literacy in faculty and educators. Well-designed and well-delivered rubrics are effective tools for evaluation and learning. Join us for this practical FLO MicroCourse that focuses specifically on rubrics. Create a rubric that will clarify course expectations, guide your learners, and assess their progress. Learn what goes into the process, then do it! This course takes place over five days, with a bit of spillover into the weekend to tie up loose ends. The idea is to provide a supportive environment for you to ask questions, take risks, offer advice, and have fun. Total time commitment is approximately 60–90 minutes per day.

There will be one live and interactive Zoom lecture on Monday, June 6, 11 a.m.–noon PT (recorded) and a community of practice session on Friday, June 10, 9–10 a.m. PT.

You will leave this course with:

  • A deeper understanding of why we use rubrics, who they are for, and what makes a good one
  • New ideas and skills for creating rubrics
  • A first draft, with feedback
