WHM-"The Dirt" Podcast explores The Life of Helen Hunt Jackson
3:00 pm to 4:20 pm
WINN 150

Join "The Dirt" hosts Anna Goldfield and Amber Zambelli as they do a "live recording" of their podcast by exploring the story of Helen Hunt Jackson, an American poet, writer, and activist on behalf of Native Americans. She fought against the United States’ treatment of indigenous people during the westward expansion in the 1800s, and attracted significant attention to her cause. This topic also ties in to a brief history of Jackson’s work with the California missions, and will reference some of the archaeological conservancy projects related to California’s historic missions. "The Dirt" podcast covers a wide range of anthropological topics with the intention of making science and research accessible and fun for general audiences.

Rubrics Make Better Assessment
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Center for Instructional Innovation (BS-163)

Rubrics for an assessment are a useful tool for both teachers and students. A rubric helps students by letting them know our expectations for success in an individual activity, and rubrics can also help us give feedback by focusing our comments (and even grades!) on how well students have met those expectations. In Canvas, the Rubrics tool can be set up with multiple criteria, each with its own number of levels. Rubrics can be used with or without numbers, for grading, and even connected to Outcomes.

The ABCs of the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric
Repeats every 2 weeks every Tuesday 6 times.

Center for Instructional Innovation (BS-163)

Over the course of our six meetings this semester, my plan is to rotate presenting on how to build Canvas courses that align with particular sections of the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric and for each of us to share how we have been putting that section’s criteria into place:

  • Feb. 12: Present on Section A: Content Presentation
  • Feb. 26: Share on how we present content
  • Mar. 12: Present on Section B: Interaction
  • Mar. 26: Share on how we design interactions with and among students
  • Apr. 9: Present on Section C: Assessment
  • Apr. 23: Share how we assess student learning

Attached to this meeting invitation is the rubric. Please check the DEWD website for information about how to meet the criteria for sections D and E, which focus on accessibility. Please contact Gregory Beyrer to register for this workshop series.
