Using Midcourse Feedback for Instructional Improvement
Presenter: Gregg Wentzell, Center for Teaching Excellence Assistant Director
The Center for Teaching Excellence houses a web-based repository of midcourse evaluation resources to help faculty improve learning and teaching in their courses. This session focuses on procedures and tools faculty can use 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 also can serve faculty seeking advancement by generating data that can be used to document efforts to improve instructional quality. Participants will discuss midcourse evaluation considerations, review the tools, identify the most suitable procedures and tools for a course they are teaching this semester, and be prepared to implement midcourse evaluations aligned with their course needs. Note: Laptops are required for this session.
