Active Teaching Lab: Rubrics for Better Grading

Friday, August 30 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am


Canvas-focused Labs — More structured topics with an emphasis on starting smart in Canvas

Often the bane of instructors, grading can be a much simpler task when assignments are designed and supported with rubrics. As a bonus, students have a clearer understanding of what they’re supposed to learn! We’ll explore examples and techniques for simplifying assignments and grading.

Walk-ins welcome but registration appreciated to ensure refreshments for all. Bring your laptop or mobile device for hands-on experimentation.

Active Teaching Labs are a collaboration between DoIT Academic Technology’s Faculty Engagement service and the UW-Madison Teaching Academy, with sessions held Wednesdays from 1:00-2:00 pm and Fridays from 8:30-9:45 am in the Middleton Building (1305 Linden Dr.), room 120. Check out upcoming Labs or read the recaps from past Labs. We build interdisciplinary conversations that are more emergent than a presenter and more dynamic than a panel — a conversation with colleagues sharing challenges, solutions, and experiments on topics selected by a variety of campus stakeholders.
