In this episode of WWYK, I talk with Dr. Sapna Mehta from the Department of Biology, and she shares how she has transformed an upper-level class in two ways—by taking a hybrid approach and by replacing all her exams with weekly scaffolded exercises that lead to a final project. That final project is also one of their own choosing. This episode is a bit longer than most, but we covered a range of topics that overlap—alternative assessments, hybridizing a class to focus class time on application activities, and engaging students by giving them self-determination over their final assignment format and topics. I had fun in this conversation, hearing how Sapna layered these strategies to truly transform her class. And she’s not going back.
