Interested in exploring equitable grading schemes with colleagues? CTL is excited to host an informal chat with EECS faculty Dan Garcia, who will share his grading approach of “A’s for All.” Participants are invited to discuss successes and challenges with equity in grading, and brainstorm new strategies to try. Instructors from all disciplines and all experience levels are welcome. BYOB (bring your own beverage) and connect with other colleagues on campus.
Dan Garcia (UC Berkeley MS 1995, PhD 2000) is a Teaching Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at UC Berkeley. Selected as an ACM Distinguished Educator in 2012 and ACM Distinguished Speaker in 2019, he has won all four of the department's computer science teaching awards, and holds the record for the highest teaching effectiveness ratings in the history of several of the department's courses. He is a national leader in the "CSforALL" and "A's for All (as time and interest allow)" movements, bringing engaging computer science to students normally underrepresented in the field, and supporting them to achieve proficiency.
