The goal of transparent instruction is to make learning processes explicit and equitably accessible for all students. The Transparent Assignment Design framework is composed of three elements: the purpose of the work, the tasks involved, and the expected criteria and examples of what these criteria look like in the real world. In this workshop, we will examine the framework and some examples of it in action. Then we will reflect on what elements already exist in our teaching practice and what we might wish to incorporate into our course assignments.
For Future Faculty Program participants, this session fulfills the “Diversity and Inclusive Teaching” or “Assignments, Assessment, & Active Learning” requirements.
This session is only open to Northeastern University educators. Please use your Northeastern email when registering.
