Developing Effective Assignments

The School of Graduate Studies will sponsor a teaching workshop for both new and current graduate students along with new UND Faculty and Instructors.

This workshop is brought to you in partnership with the Teaching Transformation and Development Academy as part of the School of Graduate Studies teaching workshop series.

What makes one assignment more effective than another? How do we design assignments that allow students to demonstrate their best work and allow us to understand their learning? In this session we will cover the basic principles of assignment design and share best practices for creating assignments that students embrace and we don't mind grading.

Presenter: Anne Kelsch

I am glad to have been to such an interesting workshop, where I recalled the information I knew before and discovered some new ideas. I am greatly appreciative for the examples of assignments for big classes. Sure, they will come in handy, as well as for the idea of Prereview Class. On returning home (I am a Fulbrighter at the UND for only 5 months) I am certain to hold a survey on Transparancy of my courses. Special thanks for the links given at the end of the workshop. I have already shared them with my colleagues and students in Moldova. I am looking forward to the next meeting with Anne and her enthusiastic, welcoming and eager to help any moment colleagues. You all are doing great job!
