Toward More Effective Feedback on Students’ Written Work

Toward More Effective Feedback on Students’ Written Work

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 12:00 pm

Facilitator: Susan Hill, CETL

If you love to grade, this session isn’t for you. If you’d rather clean out your closets or do anything else to avoid grading, then you’ll want to join us. We’ll begin by thinking about what we want to accomplish when we grade. Then, we’ll look at what the research says about what kind of feedback is most helpful for learning. Finally, we’ll explore strategies for giving good feedback to students quickly and more effectively.

Wellness Wednesdays: Sleep

Wellness Wednesdays: Sleep

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 -

2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

When tests, projects, and papers are upon us, we always think we can give up sleep “for awhile.”  Yet most of us live in a constant state of sleep deprivation, not realizing what a profound negative impact it has on our lives. Getting enough sleep is vital for our health and overall quality of life. Participants in this session will learn the importance of sleep and tips for good sleep habits.
