Rubrics for Inclusive Rigor in Teaching and Admissions: Part 1

, 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 a 2-part series on rubrics with this session (Part 1) focused on rubric design principles and variations in teaching contexts. Part 2 of the series meets at the same time on Tuesday, October 10th and builds on Part 1 to help faculty apply this understanding of rubrics to support holistic review of graduate program applications. Both sessions will include faculty panels sharing concrete examples from Brown courses and graduate admissions committees. Please register.
