2020 MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY FACULTY SYMPOSIUM
Inclusive & Equitable Classrooms:
Transparent Design and Assessment
Tuesday, January 7, 2020
The Center for Teaching & Learning and the Committee on Teaching invite faculty to join
us for the 2020 Faculty Symposium on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at Sensenbrenner Hall.
As faculty work to foster inclusive teaching across campus, it is important to include testing,
assessment, and grading practices as part of that work. To lead change in this area, faculty may need support in accessing frameworks, resources, and strategies that can help them situate grading and assessment in larger conversations about diversity and inclusion. This symposium will engage faculty in conversations and activities designed to foreground questions of diversity and inclusion in considerations of assessment and grading practices.
LOCATION: Sensenbrenner Hall, Eisenberg Reading Room
Questions: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Tuesday, January 7, 2020
- 8:00am - 2:00pm
PRELIMINARY ITEMS TO REVIEW FOR PARTICIPANTS:
Four brief videos produced by TILT Higher Ed and Mary-Ann Winkelmes
Second, familiarize yourself with these articles:
- Berrett, Dan. “The Unwritten Rules of College.” The Chronicle of Higher Education (2015).
- Winkelmes, Mary-Ann et al. "A Teaching Intervention that Increases Underserved College Students’ Success." Peer Review (Winter/Spring 2016).
Choose an assignment that you’ve given in the past that you think would benefit from a transparent makeover in our work session on January 7th. Assignments that have led to many frantic student emails, or many submissions that seem to miss the entire point of the assignment, might be a good candidate here. Please bring a printed copy of the assignment prompt, as well as a separate page with your learning objectives for it, to the symposium.
