Tips for TAs: Harnessing the Power of Student Feedback

Thursday, November 2, 2017

11:40 AM - 12:55 PM

Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511


Typically, we think of student feedback as coming at the end of the semester in the form of course evaluations, but students provide feedback to instructors and assistants every day. In this workshop, led by Caroline Dunn, Winner of the USC Education Foundation Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Award, we will talk about how to recognize student feedback and the variety of forms it may take, both solicited and unsolicited. We will discuss and collaboratively create strategies for mid-semester evaluations, evaluate existing tools for soliciting student feedback, and explore case studies where student feedback has been solicited to improve existing and future courses.
