Add to CalendarThe Tao of Marking: Finding Joy by “De-Complicating” Grades and Feedback01/03/2019 12:00 PM01/03/2019 02:00 PMMM/DD/YYYYAmerica/Vancouverfalse

We care deeply about our students—that’s why we teach. But caring for our students can also lead us to adopt practices that are non-sustainable and maybe even joyless, such as long weekends bent over papers, grading sessions that extend into the holidays, or hours crunching numbers to produce final course marks. If these behaviours are the result of our caring, we have to begin questioning “why?” Why has it been possible for our caring to displace our pleasure and satisfaction as educators. Where did the fun go, and what can we do to get it back?

Join for an interactive session about grading and feedback.
