Time: 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM
Location: Mell 3550

The Transparency in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education Project (TILT) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas demonstrated in a national study that transparency around academic assignments enhances students’ success – especially that of first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented college students – at statistically significant levels (Winkelmes et al., 2016). This workshop will introduce you to the research on transparent assignment design and provide authentic experiences to practice evaluating assignments for transparency in order to apply the assignment design framework to our own courses.

In this session you will:

  • Learn the impact data on the success of this project and its implications for increasing equity and inclusion in your classroom.
  • Consider implications of impact data on the success of underserved students who received transparent instruction.
  • Engage with resources needed to implement transparent instruction on your own.
  • Examine examples of assignments and use the TILT design framework to craft our own transparent assignments.
  • Amplify your ability to use inclusive teaching practices in your courses.
