ONLINE: Assignment Design Charrettes
Email for details.
Assignment design charrettes are workshops in which faculty share assignments to get an external perspective from a different discipline. These workshops are designed to give feedback to assignments to help students succeed.  Assignment Charrettes are generally day-long events that gather faculty to share and improve their assignments. The charrette model has been used successfully across a wide range of disciplines to encourage thoughtful development of materials that align with course level and program level objectives. The CTLE is piloting a series of online asynchronous charrettes. Email for details.
