Details

First-generation college students often face unique challenges in their higher education journey. Using rubrics, instructors can foster an inclusive learning environment and deploy grading tools to create the best learning environment for students. Rubrics provide a clear outline of expectations, assisting students in the achievement of learning outcomes that enable them to complete their educational goals. This session focuses on rubrics as one strategy to support first-generation college students.

 

By the end of this session, participates will be able to:

  • Improve the learning experience of first-generation college students
  • Define rubrics and identify the types of rubrics
  • Create an interactive rubric in Blackboard and apply it to an assignment for grading

 

This workshop is an elective session for a certificate of completion in Teaching Towards Inclusive Excellence.
