    1. Writing longer syllabi and spelling out every expectation for interaction, policy compliance, technology requirements, and prerequisite knowledge leads to a learning environment where compliance becomes more important than human relationships

      The challenge here seems to be about implementing human-centered practices in classrooms situated within a culture or larger system that does not prioritize or support humanity or human relationships. Assignment rubrics are often sold to instructors as a time-saving tool (to avoid students contesting their grades), while we could instead highlight the value of rubrics as a guide to help students focus on the important learning points.

    1. Compass Points, a routine for examining propositions.

      via https://pz.harvard.edu/sites/default/files/Compass%20Points_0.pdf

      • E- excited
      • W- worrisome
      • N - need to know
      • S - stance or suggestion for moving forward

      These could be used as a simple set of rules for thumb for evaluating and expanding on ideas in note taking or social annotation settings.

      Compare these with the suggestions of Tiago Forte in his book Building a Second Brain. Which is better? More comprehensive? Are there any ideas missing in a broader conceptualization? Is there a better acronymization or analogy for such a technique?

      P.R.O.B.E. rubric participation (exceeds, meets fails), respectful, open, brave, educational

      Mentioned in the chat at Hypothes.is' SOCIAL LEARNING SUMMIT: Spotlight on Social Reading & Social Annotation

      in the session on Bringing the Margins to Center: Introduction to Social Annotation

      Looking at the idea of rubrication, I feel like I ought to build a Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey script that takes initial capitals on paragraphs and makes them large, red, or even illuminated. Or perhaps something that converts the CSS of Hypothes.is and makes it red instead of yellow?

      What if we had a collection of illuminated initials and some code that would allow for replacing capitals at the start of paragraphs? Maybe a repository like giphy or some of the meme and photo collections for reuse?

    1. Once we introduce evaluation into our learning spaces, we change the way we interact with student work.

      Evaluation is not the same as feedback. Evaluation is almost always directed at unsolicited advice. Feedback may praise or criticize, but usually seeks value in something.

    1. humane in a way standardized teacher-centered rubrics usually are not

      Interesting implication about rubrics. Advocates do find them humane. Yet it's probably fair to say that not all rubrics appear humane to those who are submitted to them.

    1. Too often, rubrics are tools for measurement more than guidance, and they are more prescriptive than aspirational.

      "Too often" is interesting here. It leaves the door open for rubrics which do provide guidance and aspirational goals. That's an intriguing challenge.

    1. portfolio rubric

      Does a rubric still create the same sense of arbitrariness, though? That's been one of my main challenges of ungrading:

      • how to not shift the burden of the responsibility of judgment from me to my students?
      • how to avoid rubrics that simply re-inscribe the values I'm trying to eschew?

    1. Patreon Engineering Levels

      Engineering focus, but a very detailed rubric of how to rank different personnel levels. Could maybe be generalized/adapted for other fields.
