    5 Ways You Can Teach Even More With Feedback

    5:30 PM-7:00 PM


    5 Ways You Can Teach Even More With Feedback

    This session will be hosted on campus only in the Katzer Collaboratory, Hinds 347.

    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 will share practical methods to apply what research tells us about these perceptions and strategies about instructor feedback to students.

    From this session, you’ll be able to:
    · 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

    ***Dinner will be provided***

    Please let us know if you require additional accommodations or have specific food concerns before attending.
