NASH TS3: HIPS webinar on Transparent Instructional Design with Mary-Ann Winkelmes

Mary-Ann Winkelmes
The National Association of System Heads (NASH) is sponsoring a webinar with Mary-Ann Winkelmes on Transparent Assignment Design. All members of the campus community are invited. Mary-Ann is the founder and director of the Transparency in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education Project (TILT Higher Ed). Transparent instruction is an inclusive, equitable teaching practice that can enhance High Impact Practices by making learning processes explicit and promoting student success equitably. A 2016 AAC&U study (Winkelmes et al.) identifies transparent assignment design as a small, easily replicable teaching intervention that significantly enhances students' success, with greater gains by historically underserved students. A 2018 study suggests those benefits can boost students' retention rates for up to two years. In this session we'll review the findings and examine some sample assignments. Then we’ll apply the research to revising some 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 that promote students’ learning equitably.
