Teach Talk Listen Learn is a podcast featuring conversations about teaching and learning at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Join host Bob Dignan and his guests as they shine a spotlight on the innovative and creative ways faculty and instructors across campus are shaking up the hallowed halls of academia to engage traditional and nontraditional students in all modalities and create transformative learning experiences for them.
Our first episode is all about grades – or lack of them, to be more precise.
We chat with Kary Zarate (Special Education) and Billy Huff (Gender & Women’s Studies and Communication) about Ungrading, and why they're Ungrading in their classrooms, and the educators who inspired them to try.
Huff and Zarate share what Ungrading looks like in their classrooms, challenges they’ve encountered, and the impact it’s had on student learning—and themselves, including, as Zarate says, bringing back “the joy of teaching.”
