“Two common ways that instructors assess participation in sociology courses are recalling participation by memory or counting times spoken during class in real time. However, these common assessments rely on faulty assumptions that do not support their usage. By sharing findings from her own research, Dr. Gillis will help participants reconceptualize participation grading as an opportunity to motivate skill-building among students.”
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Sociology department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
