Carleton faculty and staff are already offering interesting assignments and activities that are designed give students feedback on their understanding and their skill development. Let’s swap stories on those efforts and talk about approaches that can save you time and help your students recognize and apply the feedback they have received. We will discuss the pros and cons of rubrics, fostering metacognition on content and feedback, and giving feedback that supports students where they are.
The Committee for Effective Learning with Technology and the Perlman Center for Learning and Teaching invite you to this workshop over two mornings to explore ways to design activities and assignments that help students make sense of the feedback they receive and which are efficient for instructors.

The facilitators will ask that you...

  • bring favorite approaches and tools for providing feedback to students
  • share your strategies for helping students respond to and act on feedback
  • consider with us the ways technology and other strategies can make this process more efficient

You’ll leave this workshop with some tools and techniques for more efficient feedback to students that you can use in Winter Term.


Eligible participants will earn a stipend of $60 per half day.
