Reflective Teaching Community Meeting: "Please Read My Comments" Feb. 1

The next meeting of the Reflective Teaching Community (RTC) will be held Friday, Feb. 1, 12-1 p.m. Morgan Grotewiel, Assistant Professor of Psychology, will facilitate the discussion titled 'Please Read My Comments!'

Most believe that instructor feedback is an essential component of students’ learning. But experience tells us that students may not read or absorb our feedback, or that they simply don’t know how to make the suggested changes. This session suggests that if we see assessment and feedback as a two-way street, we can help students become more adept at using our feedback to enhance their learning.

The Faculty Development Center invites all full-time and part-time faculty and academic partners to participate in these monthly discussions and to join us for a pizza lunch. All of our meetings are held on Fridays from 12-1 p.m. in the Faculty Development Center Suite (Emerson Library 420).

To RSVP for the February meeting, or for more information about engaged learning at Webster, please contact Liza Dister, Faculty Development Coordinator, at
