  • Grading Policy

    Courses are graded on a credit/no credit basis. Full participation is encouraged and expected. Rather than focusing on a letter grade, the learning process is supported through collaborative conversation, critique, Put It To Practice (PITP) assignments and opportunities for revision. We will create work that is worth doing and worth sharing, often discussing the idea of audience and how to make a broader impact on the educational community. Courses are assessed in accordance with the following criteria:

    • ProcessReadings, protocol facilitation, critical friend observations
    • Content =Put-it-to-Practice, WikiProjects
    • Participation =Discussion boards, weekly video conferences
