D2L Awards & GamificationWed, 19 Feb 20202:00pm - 3:30pm4/8Jeff Mundee, CETL Instructional Technology Specialist

In this workshop we will look at how to use restrictions, challenges, additional
content, media, and news, with the Awards system which can give out badges and
certificates for completing various criteria. Reward your students with
something other than grades, offer optional time pressure, opt-in supplemental
material. Drive it all with proven gamification methods like time boxes, loops,
perceived randomization. Motivate and enhance value for your students with no
overhead for the instructor week to week by leveraging automation in D2L.

Setting Goals for Our Courses (Creating Wicked Students Series)Wed, 19 Feb 20201:00pm - 2:00pm16/30Ben Newling, Physics

The thread that binds together the sessions in this series is the book “ Creating Wicked Students: Designing Courses for a Complex World” by Paul Hanstedt.  From the description on the publisher’s website:  
“the goal is […] to develop students who are not only loaded with content but also capable of using that content in thoughtful, deliberate ways.  Achieving his goal requires a top-to-bottom reconsideration of courses, and Creating Wicked Students takes readers through each step of the process, proving multiple examples at each stage”

Each session in the series centers on one chapter from the book.  This session is related to Chapter 2- Setting Goals for our Courses

Rescheduled* Efficient Grading & Feedback with CrowdMark (Hands-on Session)Fri, 21 Feb 202010:30am - 12:00pm3/6Emily Clark, CETL Instructional Designer (Ed. Tech.)

CrowdMark is a collaborative online grading platform that can greatly enhance grading, feedback, redistribution and record-keeping for tests, assignments, essays, multiple choice tests, group exams, etc.
It's useful for large and small classes alike. It allows work to be graded anywhere and anytime. It features comment libraries for regularly-used comments, management and oversight of teams of graders, tagging of problems. It eliminated the need to hand back hard copies as students receive their marked up work directly via email. The grading process itself is sped up due to the lack of paper shuffling. After a very successful pilot in 2018-19, UNB has renewed the license for 2019-20 across all units and both campuses.


In this hands-on session, you will learn:

• How CrowdMark can make grading more efficient and improve the feedback you provide.

• How to setup a CrowdMark account.

• How to import your classlist into CrowdMark

• How to create assessments.

• How to grade and return feedback.


Please bring your laptop, or contact Emily Clark if you would like to borrow one.

The Rubrics feature in D2L Brightspace is easy to set-up and will make marking written

assignments, in-class presentations, or observed skills easy and most importantly

defendable. Rubrics can be shared with students to provide guidance and set expectations for an assignment or they can be hidden and seen only by the instructors and TA's, the choice is yours. Once a rubric has been created and attached to an assessment in D2L Brightspace marking is a breeze, simply click on the criteria level the student has obtained and the system automatically adds the points and scores the assessment. There is still plenty of room to provide personalized feedback as well as areas to provide generic feedback per criteria; removing the need to enter the same critique over and over again. Best of all if you are challenged about a grade you can provide clear feedback to students about the criteria you expected and where they failed to meet that expectation.
