Longwood uses the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) to measure the extent to which our students engage in effective educational practices that are empirically linked with learning, personal development, and other desired outcomes such as persistence, satisfaction, and graduation. Faculty can use this information to better understand our students and meet students where they are. In this session, participants will learn about the 2020 NSSE results from first, second, and senior students.

Preventing Faculty Burnout: Using Rubrics to Reduce Grading Time

Facilitators:     Heather Lettner-Rust, CAFE Consultant for Teaching Writing, Associate                                                               Professor of English

Date:                March 12th from 3:00-4:30pm
We know that one of the causes of faculty burnout is working long hours. Although we won't be attempting to rework your whole schedule, this this workshop is designed to help reduce grading time on writing assignments through the use of rubrics. (Bonus: providing rubrics ahead of time also results in better papers from students!). In this session, we'll spend the first 30 minutes discuss approaches to creating effective rubrics. During the next 30 minutes, you'll have an opportunity to create/edit one of your own rubrics. We'll end the workshop with a peer review and feedback on each other's work. The goal is for you to walk away with a rubric that you can use right away.
