Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning
Theme: How well designed and implemented are your courses to maximize your students being successful learners?
Student thrive when they feel personally validated, have a growth mindset, and active involvement. Faculty play a critical role in creating this type of culture where students can be successful.
We are pleased to be meeting in person again! Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed workshop series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts guanteed.
Session 1: Maximizing Informal (IEF) and Formal (ICES) Student Feedback to Enhance Teaching & Learning (I wish I had known that earlier)
Our campus uses a formal student ratings 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 the next time, but the results are too late to help your current class.
However, by using an Informal Early Feedback (IEF) form early in this semester, you can receive timely feedback to immediately implement. You’ll get important information right now about what is successful and not as successful on both the teaching and learning. In this session, we will share with you how to order the ICES form to maximize gathering and analyzing the formal and informal student feedback. (And come back to CITL for consultation!)
*This workshop counts towards completion of any of CITL's Teaching Certificates. To learn more about our Teaching Certificate program please visit https://go.illinois.edu/teaching_certificates.
