8:45am - 9:25am: Creating Your Own OER? Consider Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT)
Karen Nichols, Xavier University of Louisiana
Studies show that just two instances of transparent instruction in a term significantly enhanced students' success, with even greater gains for first-generation, low-income and underrepresented college students. Transparent teaching methods help students understand how and why they are learning course content in particular ways. Participants are shown an overview of the TILT program. The Assignment Template is given to the participants with examples from various disciplines. The presenter discusses the positive impact of changing one assignment in her own online class. Additional resources as well as how to sign up for the research study are provided.
