Part 1: What does "Academic Rigor" mean to you and your institution? Explore the definition of academic rigor and its role in education during Part 1 of "What's Rigor Got to do with It?". Through panel and small group discussions, you'll come away with an understanding of various interpretations of academic rigor, how institutions address the topic, and what role academic rigor plays in a quality education.
Part 2: Extend the discussion on academic rigor from Part 1, and join us as we examine the relationship between academic rigor and alternative learning initiatives, as well as between academic rigor and open educational resources. The small group discussions will center around what quality looks like in alternative learning initiatives and how academic rigor fits into the selection and use of open educational resources.
