Faculty Development Center Sessions

 

 

 Welcome! The Faculty Development Center looks forward to bringing you new sessions coming this Fall 2022!

 

The Faculty Development Center provides opportunities for ongoing discussions about pedagogy and instructional design. These are accomplished in one-on-one and group settings through faculty consultations, classroom visits, faculty learning communities, workshops, and conferences. We collaborate with people and programs on Murray State’s campus and beyond to support the advancement of engaging pedagogy and effective instructional design. We support the university’s core mission of teaching excellence by helping cultivate an institutional climate that values, promotes and rewards teaching excellence at Murray State University.

We look forward to working with you!

RUBRIC REHAB: DESIGNING AN EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR INSTRUCTORS AND LEARNERS

RUBRIC REHAB: DESIGNING AN EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR INSTRUCTORS AND LEARNERS

How would you evaluate the quality of a student's work? If you were to judge a chocolate chip cookie contest, how would you determine the winning cookie? 

Most likely, you would be given a rubric to help you. Just as a rubric is important in deciding the best cookie, a rubric also can be instrumental in assessing a student's work. This micro-learning training will guide you through the main parts of a rubric and how to create a rubric in Canvas. 

Session Objectives:

  1. Identify the main parts of a rubric.
  2. Apply the elements of a rubric to a student assignment.
  3. Create an effective rubric using the Canvas rubric tool.

Presenter:  Dr. Melony Shemberger, Associate Professor, Mass Communication
