FLO: MicroCourse: Rubrics

Join us for this practical FLO MicroCourse that focuses specifically on rubrics. Create a rubric that will clarify course expectations, guide your learners, and assess their progress. Learn what goes into the process, then do it! This course takes place over five days, with a bit of spillover into the weekend to tie up loose ends. The idea is to provide a supportive environment for you to ask questions, take risks, offer advice, and have fun. Total time commitment is approximately 60–90 minutes per day.  June 6-12, 2022.

Conferences

There are many conferences you can attend virtually or in person. Clayton R. Wright maintains an excellent international conference list of Educational Technology & Education Conferences.

You'll want to exercise your own due diligence about which conferences you may want to attend or submit a paper to.

We suggest you assure yourself that the conference is legitimate by checking its website for credible information:

  • dates and locations
  • conference organizers
  • conference sponsors
  • fees
  • submission dates
  • editorial committee
  • program and venue details

If you're not certain whether a conference is legitimate, consider using the Think, Check, Attend tool to confirm its academic credentials.
