Check Your Course's Pulse: Continuous Feedback Methods
Location: JC Room G
Presenters will demonstrate two methods of receiving course feedback from students. In the first method, presenters distribute notebooks throughout the classroom. Students are invited to write feedback and ask questions without disrupting class flow. Students may submit feedback in the notebook anonymously. The second method uses a Qualtrics survey to conduct a mid-semester course review. Presenters will discuss best practices for eliciting constructive criticism from students, and fostering a culture of student/faculty collaboration through this activity. Both feedback methods allow students to provide feedback on teaching methods, amount and difficulty of content, course presentation, and general classroom culture. The feedback allows faculty to make mid-course adjustments to improve their instruction and better facilitate learning. Eliciting feedback from students allows faculty to model the professional behavior of receiving and responding to feedback. Providing opportunities for continuous student feedback allows students to take responsibility for their learning.
