Feb. 26 On Teaching lunch seminar focuses on redesigning student assignments

Assignment design is an ongoing process of fine-tuning. While we all make adjustments to our assignments as the semesters go by, it can be especially helpful to share those assignments with colleagues during the redesign process. In this On Teaching seminar, two faculty members will share projects that they have already assigned in their classes and that they plan to redesign. We will talk about the course context, the goals of the assignment, what went well, and what needs to be improved. Together, the group will come up with ideas for the faculty members to consider in redesigning their assignments.

The seminar takes place on February 26 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Badlands Room, Memorial Union. Please register by Friday, Feb. 22, at noon to attend and reserve a lunch. Visit the Office of Instructional Development online ( to register. For information contact Jana Lagro at 777.4998 or
