Integrative Learning through Signature Assignments
Thursday, August 27, 2020
10:00 am - 11:35 am - webinar
12:00 - 12:45 pm - workshop
via Zoom
Join the UM-Flint Signature Assignment Study Team for our home-grown  Pre-Convocation Workshop! Participants will learn about key elements of what we call “signature assignments,”  a high-impact pedagogy that fosters integration of learning through reflective practice.  Our study shows that attention to making connections, student self-direction, and metacognition increases engagement and satisfaction with learning.  Learn about our ongoing study, hear from a panel of faculty who have used signature assignments, and share your own ideas.  
A 90-minute Zoom webinar about signature assignments with opportunities for questions and discussion will be followed by a 45-minute Zoom workshop on your ideas for tweaking an old assignment or creating a new one as a signature assignment.
