Teachers' Lounge: Involving Students in Rubrics
Teachers’ Lounges are series of informal discussions about teaching practices and the culture of learning at Columbia. Our conversations often introduce participants to related educational models, research, and theory, and invite dialogue about their pertinence to day to day teaching. Graduate students and new instructors at Columbia are especially welcome, and pizza is available.
In Fall 2017 we are exploring creative approaches to grading that increase student agency and morale. In this session, we will consider involving students in the co-construction and co-application of rubrics or other grading criteria.
