Keynote Presentation: Assessing class participation for effective and inclusive learning 

This interactive workshop will explore how to assess class participation authentically, effectively, and fairly to promote active and engaged student learning. Participants will consider the benefits, opportunities, challenges, and constraints afforded by their own context when assessing class participation to identify policies, tools, and practices able to leverage positive outcomes – for students and for teachers. We will critically evaluate existing marking rubrics designed to assess class participation holistically before working collaboratively to create rubrics which are well-aligned with our teaching goals and aspirations for equitable and high-quality student learning within our diverse learning communities.

Practical Session: Trying out different strategies of assessing class participation
