Discussion assignments can be designed using various formats and platforms. However, selecting the most appropriate delivery option as well as the type of discussion question(s) should be purposeful and meaningful to student learning outcomes. Furthermore, different fields of study may find benefit in specific delivery options compared to others. This session led by Dr. Aaron Sciascia, will introduce and critique existing delivery options, discuss how to connect discussion questions with learning outcomes, and provide examples to assist participants with future assignment development.

Transparency in Learning and Teaching is a framework for designing courses to explicitly guide students through the processes of college work. For students who have never written a research paper, it provides scaffolding to approach the project, and explains the purpose of assignments as motivation to complete them. For advanced students, it helps them conform to particular standards within a discipline. This session will explore how to identify assignments that might benefit from transparency, and how to break them into parts and explanations to guide students in the creation of the final paper for an upper division course, and discuss the lessons learned from implementing these practices on an upper division undergraduate writing assignment.

Participants will be introduced to the needs of the universities "breakaway learners" through the work of Dr. Karen Gross's book “Breakaway Learners: Strategies for Post-Secondary Success with At-Risk Students." They will learn how postsecondary institutions can change breakaway students outcomes for success by helping to incorporate the concept elasticity into our work with them. This presentation will be through the lens of working with student parents, but the concepts are interchangeable for any breakaway learner.
