September 22, 2017

“Transparency in Assignments for Academic Excellence and Student Retention”, aims at increasing transparency in teaching—that is, being more clear in our communications with students about the purpose, specific tasks, and criteria for success in a course or assignment. Interested instructors are encouraged to participate in some upcoming opportunities to learn more about how to make their teaching more transparent and the benefits that this can bring to students at Webster University.
