Course Success Series: Writing Motivating, Inclusive & Clear Instructions

November 3, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am


Clear and actionable instructions for completing assessments support student confidence, engagement, performance and success. By tailoring instructions to the student perspective, you can empower more students to complete the task confidently and successfully, reduce the number of student questions and emails, and reduce grade disputes. This session will outline general practices to help ensure your directions are not only clear, but inclusive and motivating for your students.
