This interactive workshop will focus on different approaches to developing and using rubrics to evaluate student writing. Participants will learn about the key elements of designing effective rubrics that are connected to the learning objectives for each assignment and for the course. Reviewing a variety of sample rubrics, participants will discuss how rubrics can be used to maximize objectivity and fairness when grading student writing.
This workshop is part of a two-session series offered this semester on Teaching with Writing. Attendance at both sessions is not required.
Registration is required, and seating is limited.
Presenters: Beth Fisher, Ph.D., Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center and Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center

Participation in this workshop series partially satisfies the advanced-level training requirement for the Teaching Citation program and the Preparation in Pedagogy (PiP) program.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by attendance at a specified number of introductory-level TA-Training workshops.
