Creating Transparent Assignments that Increase Students' Success Equitably

Presenter: Dr. Heather M. Woodson, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Gaston College

The student population in US higher education is increasingly diverse and non-traditional. As such, faculty must look to provide equitable educational opportunities for a broad variety of learners. Data from a national study identifies transparent instruction (transparency framework) as a replicable teaching practice that significantly enhances students' success, with greater gains for historically underserved students [Winkelmes et al, Peer Review, Spring 2016]. Students' persistence and retention can also benefit from transparent teaching and learning practices [Gianoutsos and Winkelmes 2016; Winkelmes et al. 2019]. In this workshop, we will briefly review the educational research behind the concept of transparent teaching/learning. Next, participants will apply the Transparency Framework to the design of your own class activities and assignments. Participants will leave with a draft assignment or activity for one of their courses, and a concise set of strategies for designing transparent assignments and class activities that promote students’ success equitably. Participants are asked to bring two current assignments to examine and modify during the workshop.
