Designing around Real Work

“Real Work” principles are a way to think about designing assignments that feature one or more of the following strategies: (a) use of authentic sources; (b) balance of team and individual work; (c) peer presentation, review and critique; (d) integration of student-generated instructional materials; (e) student use of instructional technologies; and (f) a balance of convergent and divergent tasks. Based on examples, participants will be asked to consider how these principles might be used to modify assignments in their own teaching practices.
