Assistant Provost for Teaching and Learning at Elon University Peter Felten will discuss how to positively impact student learning. The university should be a life-changing place for students.

In order to effect transformation of students' lives, we have to be willing to change how we do things and develop new experiences for students. This seminar will explore research into the nature and qualities of university experiences that challenge students to develop the knowledge, skills, and commitments that allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

13. TLTC Teaching Tip of the Week: Improve your Teaching with Mid-Semester Evaluations

Event Type(s): Other

Mid-semester evaluations are a great and easy way to assess the progress of your course. You can use anonymous evaluations by asking students three simple questions: what should I stop doing, what should I start doing, and what should I continue doing in the class? Also ask students to evaluate themselves by reflecting what they should stop, start or keep doing to learn better and finish the course successfully. These student self-evaluations should stay with the students but do discuss your response. Explain why you agree or disagree with a suggested change and when a possible change will be implemented.
