Faculty Center CRSP Series: How Transparency Can Create More Equitable Classrooms

In this 90-minute session, part of the Faculty Center CRSP Series, participants will learn concrete strategies for being more transparent with their students about their goals and expectations for them. Recent research by Dr. Mary-Ann Winkelmes and others show that these few simple steps toward greater transparency can enhance students’ learning in our classes and boost retention, all while having disproportionately large benefits for first-generation students. Participants will examine examples of assignments that have been redesigned to be more transparent for students and then engage in peer review of each other’s assignments.
