Interested in learning how to gather meaningful mid-semester feedback data to inform how you teach?
We are pleased to again offer this practical two-part session! In the first session, you will learn some formative feedback principles and a research-based method for gathering student input. Between the first and second session, you will collect feedback from students in a class you are teaching. Then, you will then have the opportunity to analyze your student feedback data and receive guidance in creating an individualized action plan for your course during the second session.
What Are My Students Really Thinking? Collecting Meaningful Data to Inform How You Teach will meet on Tuesday, September 17 and Tuesday, October 15. Register for both sessions today!
