Effective Feedback in Less Time? It’s Possible!

It’s that time of year when students are preparing to take midterms and effective feedback becomes even more essential to get students back on track. Those of us teaching online know providing non-verbal feedback can be frustrating; trying to get your thoughts into words and received correctly can be tricky and time consuming but necessary. Have no fear, John Orlando, Ph.D., the Associate Director of the Faculty Resource Center at Northcentral University has a few tips for you! In his article “How to Give Your Students Better Feedback in Less Time” he suggests creating a “toolbox” to keep frequently used comments such as citation methods and remediation links at the ready to plug in when needed rather than recreating the wheel. While this sort of feedback is not topic specific it can still save time when addressing common spelling and grammar mistakes, citations or reference issues.

Makerspace Corner

Don't keep calm and carry on.

If you have not yet participated in a MakerSpace workshop we have lots to share! October was a busy month in the MakerSpace. The TLT Center hosted three workshops that students, faculty, and employees participated in. Check out the Halloween themed 3D Printing and Wearable Electronics projects that were created this month.

We invite you to check out an upcoming workshop to join in the fun. What will you make next month?
