Evidence from the work that students do in their courses is proving especially powerful for improving student learning - but this is only true when the assignments and tasks that faculty require of students are clearly and explicitly aligned with designated learning outcomes. To facilitate tight alignment between assignments, evaluative criteria, and student learning outcomes, faculty are coming together collectively to work on assignment design. This session features the work of those fostering faculty discussion space around assignment design, highlighting the ways that a focus on assignments as assessments can more deeply engage faculty and also strengthen student learning and success. Participants will hear about lessons learned, toolkits, and resources available from the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) to support campuses that are interested in facilitating assignment design conversations, both face-to-face and online, as an embedded part of their assessment process. Panelists will share ways they have modified available resources to support their assignment conversations.
