Feedback is your friend: Using course data to inform course design

Schedule: Monday, April 30, 2018, 01:30 PM – 04:00 PM
Location: Medical Education Building, Room 3102

Student feedback, student engagement in class and online, as well as student academic performance can provide instructors valuable data for assessing and reviewing their course design. In this workshop, we will explore a variety of different approaches to collect and use this data to better inform our teaching and grading. Methods include

  • conducting surveys and focus groups to capture a richer picture of student engagement with course materials and with learning activities/tools;
  • using test-item analysis to identify threshold concepts and points in the course where students would benefit from additional resources;
  • tracking student use of resources to help determine those that students find most useful and whether they seem helpful for increasing student success

Participants will have the opportunity to identify the advantages, challenges, and possibilities for employing varied techniques to help review and improve their course designs and assessments.
