"Transparent Design in Higher Education Teaching and Leadership brings together evidence and examples of one of the most elegant and transformative ideas I have encountered: revising assignments to clearly include the purpose, task, and criteria fosters student success and contributes to closing achievement gaps. This practical yet visionary volume offers a unique set of resources of special value to educational developers--faculty and staff working to improve higher education from centers for teaching and learning and similar units. With cases that are adaptable to a wide range of institutional settings and goals, this book should be one of the first resources educational developers turn to when designing programs, evaluating impact, and collaborating with institutional leaders."--Cassandra Volpe Horii, Founding Director "Caltech Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach; POD Network President, 2018-19 "
