Transparent Instruction Promotes Equitable Opportunities for Student Success

, Petteruti

Transparent assignment design has been shown to increase students’ success with greater gains for historically underserved students. In this interactive presentation, Dr. Mary-Ann Winkelmes will discuss the concept of transparent teaching and learning (which involves faculty/student discussion about the relevant knowledge, skills to be practiced, required tasks, expected criteria and examples before students begin working), share data from an AAC&U study of students’ learning at seven Minority-Serving Institutions that identifies transparent assignment design as a replicable teaching intervention, and discuss examples. Participants will leave with a concise set of strategies for designing transparent and equitable assignments that promote students’ learning. Please register for this event.
