Rubrics for Inclusive Rigor in Teaching and Admissions

, 720

Well-crafted rubrics are effective tools to make both teaching and admissions more inclusive. The design process helps us make evaluation criteria explicit and intentionally include the full breadth of relevant criteria. In addition, there are a variety of ways to structure rubrics and rate assignments or applications to reflect different teaching values and perspectives. The Graduate School and the Sheridan Center are sponsoring this mini-institute on rubrics with a morning session on Rubric Design Principles and Variations in Teaching and an afternoon session on Using Rubrics for Holistic Review of Graduate Program Applications. Both sessions will include faculty panels sharing concrete examples from Brown courses and graduate admissions committees. Lunch provided. Please register for this event.
