The Students & SoTL Committee is seeking motivated individuals to join our working group to revision and improve the marking rubrics used to judge the Student Awards.
Every year, ISSOTL runs awards for the Best Student Presentation/Poster of the annual conference. These awards aim to acknowledge work that best represents the purposes, goals, and vision of ISSOTL and add new knowledge, contributes innovative research, and/or provides insightful contribution to the field by a student presenter.
As the role of students within ISSOTL expands and the types of presentations change, so need our ways of selecting student award winners. To improve the awards, we have decided to form a working group compromised of student and staff members that aims to:
- reimagine and solidify the core principles behind the awards
- draw up inclusive marking rubrics reflecting these principles
The task force will meet online first around Nov. 25th-27th and is expected to formulate core principles by December 7th to be shared with the ISSOTL board of directors for additional input. The whole project is expected to be completed by March 2019 and the new rubrics will be implemented at the next ISSOTL conference in Atlanta.
We are looking for one student and one faculty member of ISSOTL to join our working group. Applications from outside of North America are encouraged. If interested, please drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, November 20th.
Please include your name, position, affiliation, and country in the email, and tell us briefly why you would be interested in joining us.
