Glendale Community College and the Maricopa Center for Learning and Instruction are sponsoring and hosting a district-wide webcast of Best Practices in College Teaching: Designing Effective Rubrics offered through Innovative Educators. Learn how to develop rubrics that faciliate student learning, achievement, and success.
Assigning grades to student essays, presentations, and projects can be a difficult task, especially when it appears that many of the students did not understand the task assigned. Well-written rubrics help students understand what they are expected to accomplish in an assignment or a course of study. Join us and learn how to develop rubrics to assist in making the evaluation and feedback process more effective, more objective, and more likely to result in deeper student learning. Participants will receive a Quick Guide to rubrics and a rubric template.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Describe characteristics of a rubric
- Distinguish between analytic and holistic rubrics
- Design a rubric
- Articulate how rubrics can be useful
Who should attend?
- New and veteran teachers at 2 and 4-year, public and private institutions
- Graduate Teaching Assistants
- Department Chairs
- Instructional Deans
- Any College educator who is interested in teaching and learning
