Mid-Semester Student Feedback program offers an opportunity for instructors to engage students in a constructive discussion of course strengths, concerns and possible improvements while there is still time to consider changes. Perhaps as important, instructors challenge students to think more deeply about their own learning as well as their responsibilities for success in a particular course. Mid-Semester Student Feedback provides opportunities for additional sources of information on teaching as per the faculty manual, i.e., Mid-Semester results, a letter from a peer facilitator. (See E.12.1 Teaching and Advising). Finally, Mid-Semester Student Feedback can provide useful data for publishing on the scholarship of teaching and learning. I have collaborated with faculty and students across campus on conference presentations, articles, chapters and books.
Contact TILT for more information, for scheduling me or someone else to facilitate a feedback session for you, or for some training to conduct your own session. Email or call Dr. Debora Colbert: Debora.Colbert@Colostate.edu or 491-2645.
For Spring 2013, the Mid-Semester Student Feedback is co-sponsored by the CSU chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP).
