Assignment Redesign Workshop
Please register by March 30th using the following link: Assignment Redesign Workshop Sign Up.
This activity is open to DMU faculty and staff who are involved in teaching and curriculum design as well as those engaged in faculty development.
Do you have an assignment that you would like to develop or redesign? This might be an in-class activity, portfolio assignment, paper, research project, exam, etc. The Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting an Assignment Redesign Workshop. Participants will engage in a peer review process of assignment review and design. This will be a collaborative design process, allowing you the opportunity to talk with other faculty and staff interested in trading ideas about the design and use of the various tasks, projects, papers, and performances we set for our students.
The workshop aims to:
- Stimulate ideas about how to strengthen the assignment you bring to the session.
- Think together about how assignments can be intentionally linked to important course, program, and institutional learning outcomes in ways that create more coherent pathways for students.
- Open up a productive exchange of ideas about teaching and learning.
This might be a draft assignment you are working on and would like to share with colleagues, one that has worked well but may be in need of a “refresh,” or one that has not worked as you hoped.
**This workshop is modeled on a process developed by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) as part of its Assignment Library Initiative. The Library (see www.assignmentlibrary.org) is an online, searchable collection of assignments from faculty in a wide range of fields and institutional types.
