Inclusive Teaching Through Transparency In Assignments and Course Design

Articulating and sharing learning goals more explicitly, whether in the course overall or in specific assignments, can have a substantial impact on students' learning and sense of belonging. In this conversation, find out why transparency is such a powerful yet simple tool and discuss how you could incorporate this approach in your own courses.

This session is part of "Conversations on Inclusive Teaching: Summer Series 2021," supporting Caltech faculty and instructors who would like to implement and enhance inclusive and equitable practices in their teaching. Each conversation offers a short overview of a few key inclusive teaching topics or practices, with a brief overview of evidence and examples of use, and then engages participants in discussion about adapting and applying them in Caltech classes. The series is offered via Zoom; Caltech faculty and instructors are welcome to participate in individual or multiple sessions.

To view recordings of this, previous and future conversations in this series, please find them HERE on the CTLO YouTube Playlist. Please Note: Recordings will be posted within about a week of the live event.
