10-Hours-Per-Week: First Steps to More Efficient Grading Practices

As teachers we should be willing and able to teach effectively within the parameters of a “full-time” workload: 10-hours-per-week for each course. No more. No less. All of our thinking, all of our planning, all of our administrative energy should begin with an understanding of the “time” necessary to succeed as teachers. The primary goal for this workshop will be on making effective teaching choices by examining and deciding how to best spend our teaching "time." The workshop discussions and activities will focus on more efficient teaching practices by examining (or re-examining) our teaching (and assessment/evaluation) goals, a process for projects, key moments for engagement, and ways to engage with student work more efficiently. Bring a current favorite project that you would like to revise to make more efficient (and save you time!).
