Event description


Students in classes that used more transparency report gains in academic confidence, sense of belonging, and skills like group work and using written and oral communication. All students report benefits, but first-generation and underrepresented students reported even greater benefits.
Research on transparent teaching and learning at the Transparency in Teaching and Learning (TILT) project at the University of Nevada Las Vegas reports increased motivation and a higher quality of student work. This session replicates the work of the UNLV TILT project.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Determine how transparently designed assignments offer equitable opportunities for all college students to succeed;
  • Identify transparent assignment design strategies in sample assignments;
  • Apply transparent assignment design strategies to your own courses;
  • Begin to plan a draft assignment for your own course.
    Please bring a copy of a current assignment
