LLCC faculty and staff are invited to attend “Upgrading, or Why It’s Time to Rethink How We Assess” taking place Friday, Feb. 3, noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom (https://go.uis.edu/CFEZoom). Stephanie Kratz, coordinator of faculty academies at Heartland Community College will be presenting. The workshop is sponsored by the Central and Southern Illinois Faculty Development Network.

The presentation will:

  • Consider limitations of traditional grading methods.
