Research shows that faculty who make two course assignments "transparent" lead students to gains in academic achievement, academic confidence, a sense of belonging, and mastery of skills most valued by employers. Results are particularly strong with historically at-risk students. Based on the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TiLT) work of Mary-Ann Winkelmes from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, participants will learn and practice how to make an assignment transparent by clearly defining its purpose, the specific tasks students will perform, and criteria for success. The facilitator will model this process by helping participants work through sample assignments to make them more transparent.
