Creative Approaches to Short Assignments

February 27, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Short assignments can be opportunities for students to test out new ideas, identify knowledge gaps, and clarify the relevance of course materials to their own interests and career paths. But they can also feel like “busy work,” and students sometimes prioritize bigger projects and exams over these smaller exercises. In this session we’ll highlight effective approaches to connecting and scaffolding short assignments to meet larger course objectives, and we’ll talk about some of the creative approaches attendees have taken to get students invested in taking up this work. This workshop is part of the Northeast Regional Collaboration. Please use the registration link to receive the Zoom link from the facilitator. Facilitator: Jim McGrath (Salem State University).
