Using Midcourse Feedback for Instructional Improvement
Registration closes at 10:00 a.m. EDT on September 1.
Presenter: Gregg Wentzell
This session focuses on using midcourse evaluation tools to evaluate the degree to which components of a course facilitate student learning. Administering these tools relatively early and then later in a semester allows the instructor to collect student data, instructionally respond to it, and evaluate the efficacy of such responses. Not only can midcourse evaluation improve courses for students, it can also serve faculty seeking advancement by generating data that can be used to document efforts to improve teaching effectiveness. Participants will discuss midcourse evaluation considerations and learn about the tools they could use for a course they are teaching this semester. Note: Computer access (not smartphone only) is required for this session.
