Linda’s idea for this Bespoke Workshop:

“A few years ago, I conducted a literature review on rubric development for a book chapter I’d been asked to write. I learned so much that I’ve since done some conference presentations titled “Everything I Thought I Knew About Rubrics Was Wrong!” Well, that’s not quite true, but lightbulbs came on for me regarding what rubrics are, what makes a rubric valid, how to craft an effective rubric, and how to create a great assignment to be assessed by the rubric. Join me and see how many lightbulbs come on for you!”
