Using Rubrics to Foster Learning-Centered Practices Workshop
Presenters: JoAnn Gonzalez-Major & Phyllis Blumberg, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia
In this workshop the presenters introduced the participants to a 3-part self-assessment tool:
- Rubrics – help to identify possible specific examples of how teachers can transition to more learning-centered practices.
- Worksheets Part 1 – serves as a check on the validity of the learning centered practice levels selected on the rubrics earlier in this process.
- Worksheets Part 2 – is used to develop tactical plans for 2 – 3 components that the instructor would like to improve within the course being evaluated.
Then guided the audience through several practice exercises that allowed them to assess the learning-centered status of a course, and discussed how to implement the tools in their own organizations.
