Featured Event

Understanding and Doing Antiracist Classroom Assessment

April 27, 12:30-2:00pm

This workshop considers what antiracist assessment can be in university courses and how faculty from across disciplines from Humanities to STEM courses can meaningfully engage in it. Led by Asao B. Inoue, Professor of Rhetoric & Composition at Arizona State University, he argues that classroom assessment, from grading to feedback on literacy performances, is an ecology made up of seven interconnected elements. Understanding any classroom as an assessment ecology can provide a way to design and enact antiracist assessment practices in courses. Furthermore, Inoue details twelve habits of antiracist teachers that are necessary in more fully developing antiracist pedagogies and assessments. There will be a Q&A period and a handout of resources.
