Beyond Grades: Feedback for Learningteacher in class

Tired of poring over students’ work and spending hours grading? Are you frustrated that the feedback you give to students seems to go unnoticed/unused? Do you wonder how to make the feedback you give more effective? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!

Together we will reflect on our current feedback practices including the individual and disciplinary assumptions that inform them. Participants will explore the connection between feedback and student learning, and learn about giving feedback that is actionable, timely, and efficient. Through activities and discussion, you will craft an individual plan that incorporates evidence-based feedback strategies that are transparent, time-saving, and effective into your teaching practice.

Tuesday, January 28, 9:00 AM-10:30 AM (CUIMC campus)
Tuesday, January 29, 12:00-1:30 PM (Morningside campus)

Engage and Assess Science and Engineering Students with Poll Questions

Are you looking to develop questions that go beyond recall for your Science and Engineering class sessions? Would you like to explore poll question formats other than multiple choice? Do you want to assess in real-time how well all your students are answering questions to inform your next instructional decision?

In this workshop, Science and Engineering faculty will learn how to develop questions that require students to use higher order cognitive processes, such as applying concepts or evaluating hypotheses, that they can incorporate into their classroom and assess their students’ understanding in real time. This workshop combines the cognitive framework Bloom’s Taxonomy and the audience response system, Poll Everywhere, that Science and Engineering Columbia faculty and students can access.
