Do you want to spend less time giving feedback? Do you want your students to really use the feedback they get in your course? If so, participate with this workshop on feedback based on the work of David Nicol. He works on how to structure a course so that students get more opportunities to get and use feedback, while maintaining or reducing the work of the faculty. This is done by teaching students to take action on feedback from peers or whole-class discussions, and creating opportunities for students to use the feedback, e.g. pyramid exams and revisions. This session will be led by Karen Myhr, Associate Professor in Biological Sciences.

Participants will:

  • Learn about supporting students to use feedback in the form of comparing their own work to examples or rubrics instead of extensive faculty comments (Nicol)
  • Here how this approach is working at Wayne State
  • Reflect on how to structure a course for students to learn to use feedback effectively
