    Session Description

    Are your assignments eliciting the types of learning you intended? Do they incorporate elements that allow all students to demonstrate their learning? How can you help students to better incorporate your feedback? This session will include answers, discussion, and a chance to workshop real examples of assignments across disciplines. Please consider bringing an assignment or test from your class!

    Learning Outcomes 

    • Interpret a simple, evidence-based heuristic to guide inclusive assignment design
    • Evaluate your own or sample assignments for inclusive elements and create adjustments based on your evaluations to improve inclusivity
    • Discuss the ways that assignment ‘wrappers’ can improve student metacognition on their learning
