How are students engaging with your course so far? What do students think is working well and what do they wish could be changed? During this session, we will discuss how instructors can collect mid-semester feedback, why collecting mid-semester feedback is important, and how to use mid-semester feedback. Participants will be encouraged to share strategies they use to gather feedback from their students.

Engaging students is central to facilitating courses but assessing engagement has become more challenging in our virtual learning environments. Students’ anxiety over the use of cameras has left faculty questioning how they can assess student engagement while respecting student privacy. In this session, sponsored by FCIP and OOL, we will share assessments and activities that can help you gauge student engagement in a variety of ways.

As current events continue to impact us individually and collectively, we recognize the need to process the effect it is having on our teaching. Using a sharing protocol drawn from Indigenous and restorative practices, this circle will provide a structured opportunity for faculty members to share their experiences of how current events are influencing their pedagogy and teaching. (If the group is large, we will use breakout rooms to enable smaller sharing circles.) Questions? Please contact Bridget Colacchio Wesley at bwesley@luc.edu

Wednesday, October 28 and Wednesday, November 4, 2020 (with possibility of future dates)
1:00pm-2:30pm (CST)
