Reflecting on Teaching through Formative Feedback
COVID-19 has thrown faculty some unprecedented teaching challenges. Over the past few semesters, course instructors have had to reimagine their courses, learn and apply unfamiliar technologies, figure out new ways to develop relationships with students, and assess all aspects of their courses. Faculty have risen to this challenge in remarkable ways.
In this two-part workshop, we will discuss the value of a scholarly teaching approach in these times to capture teaching effectiveness for purposes of documenting growth as a teacher. Scholarly teaching involves systematically collecting data and critically reflecting on the data to understand how teaching practices influence learning. In the first session, participants will develop a plan for collecting formative feedback and in the second session determine how they can use the information to document teaching effectiveness. Registration is required.
Participants who attend both sessions and complete the required artifacts will receive a $250 stipend.
