Essentials of Teaching and Learning: Grading & Feedback (For Graduate Students)
Learn how to engage students in their learning beyond the classroom by giving more effective feedback. Join the CTL for a workshop for graduate students focused on giving you tools to grade accurately, efficiently, and encouragingly. In this workshop, you will learn approaches to grading that encourage students to focus more on their improvement and less on bottom line scores. We will introduce tools to help streamline and standardize grading, while helping students better understand what is valuable in the topic and discipline. Breakout groups during this session will allow you to focus your discussion on written assignments or problem sets.
By the end of this session, participants should be able to:
-Describe the difference between formative and summative assessments.
-Develop the values and concepts that underlay meaningful, relevant, and accessible feedback.
-Plan activities you can use with your students to measure students' learning and get feedback on your teaching.
The Essentials of Teaching and Learning workshop series for graduate students is focused on giving you tools as a new or developing instructor to better facilitate student learning and improve your teaching practice. These workshops are best experienced sequentially.
Attending this workshop and posting reflections satisfies a Foundational Track requirement for participants in the Teaching Development Program (TDP). See bit.ly/ctl-tdp for details.
