Improve Online Classroom Feedback
When it comes to helping online students learn, few practices pack the pedagogical punch of quality online feedback.
Don’t you wish your students understood that?
Too many students think of feedback in terms of grading, and they miss out on the educational benefits of following up on their assignments.
Find out how different feedback strategies can grab students’ attention in How Can I Enhance the Impact of Feedback in Online Classes?
This Magna 20-Minute Mentor program is led by B. Jean Mandernach, Ph.D., director of the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University, you’ll learn specific techniques to help you make online feedback a two-way street.
Mandernach points out that common practices in face-to-face and online feedback can undercut the basic goal of feedback, which is to help students understand, and learn from, their missteps and mistakes.
She shares a more holistic approach to help you upgrade your online feedback, making it more specific, timely, and effective—in less time than you might spend grading one paper.
Learn practical feedback strategies to help you:
- Promote student success with feedforward, or pre-emptive feedback
- Transform students into active consumers of online feedback with one-to-many presentation
- Help students better understand criteria through peer-to-peer discussion
- Enhance student engagement through multimedia online feedback
Take advantage of this opportunity to start closing the feedback loop.
