Responding to Student Input
Gathering and Effectively Responding to Student Input
"Assessment" is an essential practice in any educational context. What are practical ways that you can gather vital information from students about their learning without interrupting the flow of your class? How can you then incorporate this information "on the spot" to improve the learning environment? This session will examine best practices for collecting formative assessment and offer practical models for incorporating this feedback to improve student learning.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify specific formative assessment techniques for use in their courses
- Consider ways of using formative feedback for "on the spot" course and teaching adjustments
- Compare and contrast one to two instructional technology tools for gathering student feedback about their learning
