DECOLONIZING RIGOR IN THE COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY CLASSROOM
This is an ongoing, pedagogical project that explores alternatives to traditional methods of assessment (essays/papers and exams) in college classrooms because assessing students in text-only formats may not reflect the intellectual capacities and potential of all students. My goal is to vary forms of student assignments/assessments without compromising rigor.
Sample Student Work
- Digital Curation Project: This project comes from my class called Gender, Digital Media, and Social Curation. Students were tasked with curating an online space devoted to an issue of their choosing. Students worked on these projects throughout the semester with checkpoints along the way.
