Using Rubrics to Foster Learning-Centered Practices Workshop

educause 2006

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.
