 lecture breakers podcast college teaching active learning strategies


In episode 151 of the Lecture Breakers podcast, Dr. Samantha Scripture gives us a glimpse inside one of her graduate courses where she is using alternative grading approaches known as "grading for growth." 

In this episode, Samantha shares what works, what hasn’t worked, what the challenges are, and where she is on this journey to move towards a different approach for assessing students’ learning. And, I especially enjoyed hearing how she scaffolds active learning within her lessons...a great approach to build trust, foster community, and increase engagement!
