Rubrics can be used in a variety of ways to promote student learning, and they can help you to give feedback and assess student learning effectively and efficiently. In this three-hour workshop, you will have the opportunity to create a rubric for a new assignment or learning activity for your course this fall.
In the first hour, we will explore the different purposes and types of rubrics and recommended practices to develop an effective rubric. You will be provided with several rubric formats and select the rubric appropriate for your learning activity and purpose. In the second hour, you will work independently to draft a rubric for your learning activity. In the final hour, you will participate in a small feedback group to review the rubrics. At the end of the workshop, you will have a peer-reviewed rubric to pilot in your upcoming course. Please come to this workshop with a new assignment or learning activity for a course that you will be teaching this fall.
