- About UW
There have been many innovations in education. We have moved from classrooms to Zoom and back again. We have learned to teach effectively in synchronous and asynchronous, online environments. We have explored and implemented active, team-based, collaborative, project-based, problem-based pedagogy in our classrooms, increasing students’ engagement and learning. We have learned how games and game theory can be used to increase student engagement in class materials. In short, we have transformed education in many ways. How else might we inspire ourselves and our students? What else might we explore?
In this learning community we will think together about grading: its strengths, and its flaws. We will explore and examine alternative ways to assess learning and evaluate students. We’ll think about equity and equality in pedagogy. We will start our exploration by reading, “Ungrading: Why Rating Students Undermines Learning” by Susan D. Blum (Editor), Alfie Kohn (Foreword). Books are provided to participants. Using what we learn about (un)grading and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, we will adapt an assignment, unit, course, etc. and create a project to assess this change. We will all support each other as well as be supported by mentors from the Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning, Science and Math Teaching Center, and the Learning Actively Mentoring Program.
Application appreciated by Wednesday, August 30. Applicants will be notified by September 1st.
