FACULTY ZOOM SESSIONS                                                                   

These are informal discussions about whatever attendees want to talk about. Sometimes I’ll suggest a topic or we’ll have special guests. Other times, we talk about teaching ideas and solutions, I can give a little bit of tech help, or we just hang out.  No registration needed, just click the link to join in.

Engaging the Digital Student Initiative – Summer Institute June 2021: What’s in a Grade?

You’re invited to take a deep dive into your grading practices and grading systems. What changes can you make to the way you assess students’ learning to make it more equitable for all learners? Are there ways to grade more inclusively, allow multiple means of representation in assignment submissions, or adjust how students’ learning is assessed to encourage diversity, inclusivity, and equity? And, very importantly, how do you set it up in Canvas?       30-day online institute (June 1 – 30, 2021) with synchronous sessions on Fridays: 10:00am – 12:00pm and 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Teaching Experiment Academy Bootcamp

The Teaching Experiment Academy (TEA) invites STEM faculty to redesign or partially redesign an existing course, guided by mastery learning models, employing a specifications grading system.  From Summer 2021 to Spring 2022, work with 30+ colleagues from UCI, SJSU, and CPP to reconsider how course grading systems can motivate to learn, not just to comply.

Start with the Summer Bootcamp July 16 - 19.

 See the Call for Participation for more details.
