Increase Student Choice in order to Engage Learners and Spark Creativity
Tired of marking the same old thing? Want to increase student agency?
This session is largely experiential and participatory so be prepared to take part, discuss and try things out.
Participants in this session will review and discuss creative alternatives to research reports and papers, consider grading options, create a rubric for one alternative, and discuss what they hope to try in their own classes.
