Proponents of the grading philosophy known as minimal marking argue that “the best mark is that which allows students to correct the most on their own with the least help.” In this workshop, we’ll talk about why we assign grades to individual assignments, explore the ideas behind minimal marking, and consider how rubrics can save time and create a fairer and more instructive experience for your students. For this workshop, you will complete pre-work available in Canvas modules Friday, 2/12, and then apply what you have learned in a sychronous Zoom session on Fri, 2/26.

Participants who complete multiple sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion that acts as a credential demonstrating your investment in professional development to future employers. Complete 3 sessions and upload a qualifying reflection for a Teaching Preparation Certificate; complete 7 sessions and submit a qualifying Teaching Statement for an Advanced Teaching Preparation Certificate.
