Crafting a Course Assignment Using the Charrette Process
Are you creating a new assignment for your students or revising an existing one? You’re not alone! Exchanging ideas with faculty from your own and other disciplines can enhance your design process. In this collaborative workshop, facilitators will guide small groups of faculty through the Assignment Charrette process developed by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes and Assessment. Participants will present assignment ideas and exchange constructive feedback, resulting in new insights into both their teaching and student learning. The workshop is geared toward assignments evaluated with the MT Engage Signature Assignment Rubric, but all faculty are invited to bring an assignment for peer feedback through the charrette process.

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. Lando Carter.
