Inclusive Teaching and Learning: Providing Effective Feedback to Students
Tuesday, March 6th, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Eads Hall, Room 217
While instructors often wonder whether the feedback they are providing is helping students to improve and develop, students express frustration when they find their instructors’ comments on their work to be vague, overly-critical, or simply too brief. This workshop will include discussion of research demonstrating that certain types of feedback are more effective than others in motivating students to improve their work and to persist despite academic struggles. We will discuss how the findings of this research can be implemented to support student learning and motivation across the curriculum.
Presenter: Beth Fisher, PhD, Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center and Lecturer in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
