This chapter shares how the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) assignment design framework was investigated and implemented in face-to-face and fully online courses. After a brief introduction and literature review, the authors showcase two TILT empirical studies with undergraduate students. The two studies are shared in the form of vignette case studies. The first case study was an investigation and implementation of a TILT assignment in a fully online course. The authors will share the results from student surveys using the Transparency in Learning and Teaching Project survey. The second case study investigated student performance on a key assessment, prior to TILTing the directions and after the key assessment was TILTed. Student results, as well as lessons learned and implications for college professors and administrators, are discussed. One component of the chapter describes faculty development on TILT-based assignments, along with perceptions of and benefits of implementing TILT in the classroom.
