Unlike end-of-course evaluations, soliciting mid-semester feedback from students about the course and teaching methods gives faculty the opportunity to make appropriate changes before the end of the semester. Conducting student focus groups, administering online and in-class surveys, and utilizing classroom assessments that target learner reaction to instruction are some ways to gauge what aspects of the course helps students’ learning and what changes could be made to improve students’ learning. In this webinar, attendees will learn about these strategies for gathering mid-semester feedback from students and how to respond to it.
This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the webinars are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
