Summary
Are you eager to try new forms of assignments but are not sure where to start? Looking for resources to help students build engaging and interactive final projects? In this workshop, we'll explore alternatives to the essay, ranging from digital maps to interactive digital posters to video and multimedia. Like essays, these assignments give students the opportunity to demonstrate their mastery of course material, but they go one step further by helping students learn and refine digital skills. As we consider examples, we'll discuss best practices for designing assignment instructions and grading rubrics as well as identify local resources for training, tools, and equipment. Presented by Mary Borgo Ton.
