Feedback is a valuable tool to help students gauge how well they are currently performing and what they still need to do to improve their skills and abilities. Research shows that effective instructor feedback has positive outcomes for students. Student perceptions of feedback determine what they consider meaningful, and the time interval of feedback seems to be linked to future expectations about communication.
This session shared practical methods to apply what research tells us about these perceptions and strategies about instructor feedback to students.
The outcomes of the session were:
· Demonstrate how your students’ own perspectives / needs can affect how they learn from your feedback
· Identify strategies targeted to various class settings (large classes, online, face to face, lab settings)
· Apply feedback strategies that are best aligned to your own classes and teaching style so that your feedback can be even more meaningful
