An Introduction to Transparent Assignment DesignApr. 16 2024, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PMCTLCTLZoom

Details for An Introduction to Transparent Assignment Design

Join us as we discuss Transparent Assignment Design (Winklemes, 2019). In a 2016 study at UNLV, outcomes including persistence and retention for a cohort of students who received assignments following the transparent design framework were higher than those of the control group. In this workshop, we will cover the benefits of Transparent Assignment Design and discuss the process of designing or redesigning one of your own assignments.

Pedagogies of CAREApr. 23 2024, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PMCTLCTLZoom

Details for Pedagogies of CARE

When students report the experience of belonging within a learning environment, their academic performance, self-confidence, and motivation are positively impacted (Duran et al., 2020; Moeller et al., 2020; Jorgenson et al., 2018). Yet the reverse holds true as well: Student perceptions of non-belonging contribute to educational gaps and reduced retention rates among underrepresented populations. How can instructors foster students' sense of belonging within their courses, particularly in online learning environments where contextual cues can be difficult to read?  In this webinar, we explore the research on creating inclusive, equitable, and welcoming learning environments, drawing upon the CARE framework (community, agency, representation, and equal access) as outlined by the Online Learning Consortium. 

Specifically, attendees will:

  • Reflect on features that make learning environments inclusive, equitable, and welcoming.
  • Identify teaching strategies for creating inclusive, equitable, and welcoming learning environments.
  • Discuss ways of designing learning activities based on the CARE framework for both online and face-to-face learning environments.

Offered multiple times per year, EBPTO is conducted over six weeks and is open to all instructors, regardless of a course’s instructional delivery type. The course is encouraged for instructors teaching online, particularly those developing Accelerated Online Program courses. The time requirements are about 2-3 hours a week (12-18 total), and the course has two deliverables, a course map (a required document for many of our quality reviews) and an online teaching portfolio (comprised of elements completed during EBPTO). As of Summer 2021, instructors are required to complete either EBPTO or RASI training to teach online.
