Originating Calendar
Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning

Looking ahead to next semester, you may be teaching a course that features a large final paper, project, presentation, or other massive component. In most circumstances, you should break up that final assignment into several smaller pieces. Doing so can help your students learn more and perform better while reducing the opportunity for academic dishonesty. Plus, your grading can be more meaningful for your students and even easier on you. Come to this workshop to learn why you should break up a big assignment, and how to do it.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
