Junior Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & 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) Student Feedback to Improve Teaching and Learning
Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018
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 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 focus on the use of several informal feedback mechanisms and help you develop your own individualized IEF form to implement right away. (and come back to CITL for consultation!)
This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
