TILT Assignments to Support the Success of Students from Diverse Backgrounds

The Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILTframework helps faculty redesign existing assignments and activities in a manner that makes the purpose and expectations clearer to students. These redesigned assignments have been demonstrated to increase academic confidence, sense of belonging, and metacognitive awareness for all students, with historically underserved students experiencing the greatest benefits. Dr. Melissa Elben-Zayas, Carleton College, will provide an overview of the TILT framework and examples. In addition, we’ll consider how much time it takes to redesign existing assignments using TILT (hint: not much!) and the benefits for both students and for faculty members.
