Course Success Series: Writing motivating, inclusive, and clear instructions
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.
In this session, you will:
- Write clear instructions to preempt student questions and build students’ confidence.
- Evaluate one of your assignment instructions for inclusivity, clarity, and inspiration.
- Reflect on and apply lessons learned from remote instruction.
Review resources prior to the session.
