The Waterloo Assessment Institute (WAI) focuses on the assignment as a means of assessing student learning. Through peer feedback and guided work time, this intensive two-day retreat helps individuals and program teams to redesign key assignments in their courses. 

By the end of the Institute, participants will leave with

  • a redesigned assignment based on two rounds of feedback from peers and consultation with teaching and learning consultants.
  • a refined rubric or set of criteria with which to assess the assignment in their local context.

Whether you are an individual seeking to improve an assignment, or a team seeking to link an assignment or assignments "horizontally" (across courses in a term) or "vertically" (across courses in different terms or years), the WAI provides you with space, time, expertise, and peer feedback.
