This session will explore blended approaches to receiving and providing feedback for instructors and students. We will review formative assessment techniques for preparing students for class and getting feedback on student understanding. In addition, we will review blended ways to give students feedback on their performance on summative assessments. Columbia faculty and graduate students from all departments are welcome and encouraged to attend.
In these workshops, CTL learning designers help instructors learn to manage course websites, use tools for collaboration, improve presentations, produce video lectures, and create innovative, multimedia-based assignments.
Spring 2017 Teachers Lounges consider approaches to class discussion that genuinely engage a diverse range of students.

What does educational literature suggest — and what do we see really working here at Columbia?
For better or worse, the 2016 election brought sensitive issues into our classrooms to unprecedented degrees. This three-part series on “Activist Pedagogy in the Trump Era” will address strategies for graduate students who are interested in exploring innovative pedagogies inspired by activist-scholars in their classrooms and beyond.
