Fall Faculty Learning Communities: Focus on Rubrics

Posted by

Online instructors, you are invited to participate in this 3-part Faculty Learning Community taking place at Rock Creek fall term. The focus is on creating a rubric within D2L as a tool to communicate expectations and feedback to students. The goal is to create a rubric that you can actually use with an assignment fall term, and then discuss the results.

The sessions will be facilitated by Rondi Schei, Instructional Technology Specialist at RC. Here’s a snapshot of each part of the series.

Part I: Overview: The why & how of rubrics

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015, 12pm – 1pm, RC TLC (Bldg 7/117)

This session provides an overview of the value using rubrics brings to the classroom as a teaching tool and time reducing mechanism for grading.

Part II: Create your own rubric

Wednesday, Oct. 28th,12pm – 1:30pm, RC Bldg 2/249

In this lab session, you will develop a rubric for an assignment to be used in your current class. The rubric will be made within the D2L Rubric tool so that it can be linked to your online assignment, ready for implementation.

Part III: Discussion: Using your rubric

TBD: Early December, 12pm- 1:30pm, RC TLC (Bldg 7/117)

We will discuss the results of using a rubric with an assignment. Each participant will share the rubric used for a particular assignment and discuss the results of using a rubric, including benefits, difficulties, and what to adjust for the next use.
