Providing Frequent Feedback to Online Learners While Managing Your Workload
Effective feedback is a critical component of the learning process—and for online students especially, it also serves an important role in keeping them motivated and engaged.
For faculty, though, the feedback process can be an insatiable consumer of time and energy. That’s bad for faculty morale and well-being, certainly, but it’s also bad for pedagogy, because excessive time devoted to feedback leaves less time for the other essentials of good teaching.
Your presenter shares a set of strategies for reducing feedback burden while maintaining the high quality that contributes so much to students’ growth and learning.
This one-hour presentation illustrates how a combination of technology, time management, and teaching techniques can result in a far less time-consuming feedback process that produces strong gains in students’ cognitive understanding as well as in their sense of connection to the course and the instructor.
Throughout this seminar, you’ll gain insights on developing and delivering thoughtful, impactful feedback that:
- Increases cognitive understanding of class material
- Promotes student engagement
- Boosts motivation and morale
- Strengthens student-faculty connections
And you’ll learn to do it in less time, with less repetitive effort, and with greater satisfaction.
You’ll come away from this presentation with a set of tools to help you more efficiently manage the feedback process. Those include:
- Time-saving ways to use technology
- Prioritization strategies to balance demands on your time
- Alternate feedback approaches that enhance learning while reducing instructor workload
- Productivity-boosting ways to repurpose existing feedback statements
It’s information you can implement easily and immediately in your online courses!
