Junior Faculty Seminar Series: Best Practices to Improve Student Learning

Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  

 

Session 1: I wish I had known that earlier”: Using Informal (IEF) and Formal (ICES) Feedback to Improve Teaching and Learning

Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 

On our campus, the formal student ratings are called the Instructor and Course Evaluation System (ICES) which are administered at the end of your course. Through careful analysis, you can learn valuable information for next time, but the results are too late to help your current class.

However, by using an Informal Early Feedback (IEF) form this semester, you can receive timely feedback to immediately implement. In this session, we will focus on the use of several informal feedback mechanisms and help you develop your own individualized IEF form to implement (and come back to CITL for consultation!).

Description:

In this session, Lucas will use a simple technique for running good discussions to run a good discussion about running good discussions (it will be a meta-discussion, if you will). We will occasionally pause to examine the very discussion we are having and hence learn how to make a discussion go well. Please come prepared to share your thoughts, concerns, and questions about running effective face-to-face discussions.
