Facilitated Formative Feedback
As we approach the midterm of the semester our students have a clear understanding of how our courses are structured and what to expect. This is the perfect time to elicit formative feedback from students. The Center for Teaching, Research & Learning (CTRL) is available to facilitate a formative feedback discussion with your students. CTRL team members will come to your class for the last 25-30 minutes to facilitate a discussion with your students that focuses on what is going well, what can be improved upon, and what changes might be helpful. The CTRL will then provide you with an anonymous, transcribed report of individual student responses as well as results of the whole class discussion. This report is entirely for your use and CTRL will not share it with anyone else.
If you have any questions, feel free to email CTRL at CTRL@american.edu.
Requests for Summer 2019 are open. Be sure to make your request at least one week before the midterm of your course. The deadline for requests for Summer 2019 is July 29th.
