CRC Flex Workshop: Backward Design Makes for Authentic Assessment

A group of students watching a speaker, with the word FLEX


“Backward design” begins with the end in mind and works from there to the beginning. For courses, that means focusing on what you want students to learn and/or achieve in your course and creating assessments that allow them to demonstrate that learning and/or achievement. In this workshop, learn how backward design leads to the creation of authentic assessments in Canvas.
