Participating faculty will receive support for researching their students’ learning, a confidential individualized report [see example] about students’ learning in their particular course, and comparative information about students’ learning in comparable courses. All data is aggregate and anonymous, and all individualized reports are confidential. Faculty may participate in two ways:
- “Control Group” faculty simply ask their students to complete an end-of-course online survey (taking about four five minutes) that assesses students’ learning experiences in the course.
- “Transparency Group” faculty will make one small adjustment to their usual teaching practice by selecting one mode of transparent learning and teaching for their experiment. At the end of the course, faculty participants and their students complete an online survey (taking about four or five minutes).
