Getting Started with Ungrading and Alternative Assessments
Are you interested in ungrading and alternative assessments, but you're not sure if ungrading is for you? Don’t jump into the deep end if you’re not ready. Instead, consider entering at a place that feels comfortable. Ungrading displaces much of the responsibility for doing the work of the class onto students, and it changes your classroom dynamic. Alongside reading recommendations and accessible models, this workshop will cover how to get started with ungrading practices and alternative assessments in your discipline.
You will receive a Zoom meeting link the day prior to the workshop.
Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.
If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.
If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.
If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Sheila Otto.
