Alternatives to Traditional Essays

Invitation: Learn more about alternatives methods for accomplishing teaching goals in this session, featuring UM faculty from across disciplines.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Mar. 4, 2024
Zoom (link provided after registration)
Registration Required

Presenters: Faculty panel facilitated by Derek Bruff and Emily Pitts Donahoe

Description: There is much value in the traditional essay, but it’s not always the only, or even the best way to accomplish our teaching goals. Recently, instructors have been experimenting with a wide range of alternatives to the take-home essay, a process that the advent of generative AI has only accelerated. In this panel, UM faculty from across disciplines share new assignments they’ve developed to promote engagement, foster academic integrity, and help students demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.
