All educators are invited to a discussion of mastery grading and other nontraditional grading systems on Monday, October 15, from 12:15 to 1:15 pm in McKinley’s Private Dining Room. The facilitators will provide examples of grading systems and will discuss how such systems can increase students’ intrinsic motivation to learn and save faculty time on grading while also upholding high academic standards. Other educators who have used non-traditional grading systems are also invited to share their experiences.

Teaching Tidbits are biweekly informal lunchtime conversations on pedagogy innovations, challenges, and ideas. To submit Teaching Tidbit questions or ideas, or to gain access to the Teaching Tidbits blog, please contact Lydia Eckstein, Tricia Humphreys, or Rachel Weir.
