Unlocking Student Creativity with the Un-Essay
Petra Jelinek (Anthropology)
The un-essay is an assessment strategy that challenges students to interact with course content in meaningful ways and demonstrate their creativity, as well as their understanding of concepts. This progressive pedagogy fosters creativity, strengthens memory retention, and leads to greater learning outcomes. Petra will discuss the un-essay, share a few examples of student work, and offer a rubric to guide student success in this assignment.
