Ungrading: A Professor’s Perspective

Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2-3 p.m.

Online

This session is a part of CITL Instructor Series.

In this session, Dr. Jeannette Byrne, Associate Professor in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation, will share her journey to the adoption of ungrading for the lab portion of HKR 4703 (Occupational Ergonomics and Sport Biomechanics). She will talk about why she adopted this approach to assessment, how she did it, what worked, what didn’t, and also share with you the journey she and her students took together during the semester as they both learned to do ‘ungrading’. This journey proved to be a transformational experience for Dr. Byrne’s students as they experienced, many for the first time, the freedom to “just learn”, once the pressure of grades was removed. This will be an informal session, with lots of time for questions, discussion and learning! Come join us for this session and be part of the discussion around where (or if) ungrading fits in higher education.

Presenter:  Dr. Jeanette Byrne, Associate Professor, School of Human Kinetics and Recreation.
