RFP for Faculty Awards for the General Education Assignment Design Project (revised due date March 23, 2018)
The Faculty Awards for the General Education Assignment Design Project will provide faculty with time and guidance for the creation of assignments that will serve as learning experiences for General Education learning outcomes and develop rubrics or other tools to assess student learning on these outcomes. The goal is to develop an archive of learning activities, assignments, and assessments that can be adopted in specific GE courses or adapted to a variety of courses within each distribution area of GE. The assignments will generate assessment data on GE learning outcomes that can be aggregated across courses and multiple sections of courses within a distribution area.
The assignment design project will use a combination of Dee Fink’s (2003, 2013) backward design and the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) Assignment Design Charrette model to guide the development of learning activities and associated assessment tools.
The project will provide a total of ten (10) faculty awards. Awardees will receive a stipend ($1,000 plus fringe benefits) for their participation in the project.
Proposals are due by close of business (5 PM) on March 23, 2018. Please see the Request for Proposals (PDF) document for details about the Faculty Awards for the General Education Assignment Design Project and submission guidelines.
