Using Technology to Check Student Understanding and Provide Feedback: An Online Workshop
In this online workshop, you will explore technologies that can be used to help check student understanding and provide feedback on student learning. You will have the option to explore these tools in the context of teaching concept based material, such as problem solving, or in the context of teaching with writing assignments. Participants will reflect on how these techniques could be applied in their own classrooms, and engage with fellow participants to address any obstacles to integrating these technologies. Specifically, you will:
- Learn about the technologies and ways of using them in courses through a variety of materials, including websites, videos, and readings. (This should take about 45-60 minutes total)
- Write a reflective response to the technologies and pedagogies you engaged with. (suggested length: 400-800 words)
- Read and comment on at least two responses written by other participants. These comments will respond to questions raised by your colleagues.
- Complete an online survey about your experience as a participant.
It should take about 90-120 minutes to complete all of the activities.
