Let’s Talk Teaching: Prompt feedback

Giving students prompt feedback doesn't have to rely solely on grading papers.

It’s the episode we’ve put off doing for far, far too long! CTLT’s director, Claire Lamonica, joins Jim Gee to explore why providing prompt feedback is so important to student success … and why that’s a frustrating challenge for many of us.

These two confessed procrastinators highlight ways to encourage students to provide meaningful feedback to their peers and themselves. Find out how study groups, rubrics, and self-evaluations all play a role in supporting this important teaching practice.

This week’s show page includes links to more information about “prompt feedback” and the other Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education.
