About this Guide

Welcome to Decoding Assignments! This guide should serve to support students' learning by means of the Transparency in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education Project (TILT Higher Ed). Transparent education is the idea that instructors are communicating their course expectations to their students as clearly as possible.


This LibGuide will help you to:

  • Gain academic confidence when approaching course assignments,
  • Understand your role at UNLV,
  • Utilize courses to develop long-term skills that are useful beyond the classroom, and
  • Better communicate with professors to understand expectations.
