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 this session we consider models for priming forthright conversation and licensing intellectual risk-taking during class discussions. What does educational literature suggest — and what do we see really working here at Columbia?
