On Friday, Dec. 2, the First Friday Roundtable series at the University of Delaware will continue for the fall semester with the program “Grading Fairly and Effectively: Culturally Sensitive Assessment” from 3:30-5 p.m. in 208 Gore Hall.

All who teach at the University of Delaware are invited to the last faculty Roundtable of the semester sponsored by the Center for Teaching & Assessment of Learning and facilitated by English Language Institute faculty and administrators: Michael Fields, Julie Lopez, Rachel Lapp, Karen Asenavage and Sandy McVey, Academic Technology Services.

Participants at this session will explore issues of Culturally Sensitive Assessment Construction to guide the design of assessments for all students in their courses.

They will explore how assessments may create unintended stress and bias for students. Finally, they will discuss how creating optimal assessment environments to maximize student learning outcomes. Come learn from panelists who will share their tips for redesign.  And in the true spirit of the season, if you have a culturally sensitive assessment, tip, or idea, please bring it to share!

Please register for the upcoming roundtable so that we order plenty of holiday treats for attendees.
