Add to CalendarThe UnMarking Studio: Balancing Student Needs with Faculty Realities02/26/2019 08:00 AM02/26/2019 09:30 AMMM/DD/YYYYAmerica/Vancouverfalse

How much marking is optimal? How many assignments are best for student learning? Could we mark and grade less yet still be respectable? Or more surprising yet: Could less marking and fewer grades be causally related to more student learning? These are just a few of the inquiries you are invited to explore with your VIU colleagues in a “studio” format.

An UnMarking Studio is a meeting of 5-6 faculty in a room where everyone commits to learning and sharing their insights about marking and grading. Sessions are 1.5 – 2 hours long. During the session participants will identify challenges related to marking and grading, pose questions to deepen collective understanding, and offer solutions for all to draw from.
