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.

This session will explore Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework based on research from the fields of educational development and neuroscience.

Join an interactive, facilitated discussion on opportunities for the implementation of the UDL principles in your courses. Event Details
