"Asking the Right Questions" (ARQ): How Faculty Can Use Student Feedback to Figure Out How to Improve their Courses
Thursdays, May 13 and 20, 2010
11:00 am - 12:00 pm Eastern
Steve Ehrmann, TLT Group"Asking the Right Questions"
(ARQ) is a collection of modules
(model feedback forms and workshop materials about how faculty can use
those forms). Some of the forms are descendents of classroom
assessment techniques pioneered by Angelo and Cross, while many others
are new and often focused on particular uses of technology in on-campus
and online courses.
This online workshop will help you learn how
to use a few of those feedback forms to improve courses and workshops.
We'll also talk about how to improve these ARQ materials, and how an
institution can gradually help an increasing number of faculty,
instructors, and teaching assistants try them out.
typical ARQ workshop is only about 10-15 minutes long. In each of our
hour-long sessions we'll try doing at least two ARQ workshops, and
spend the balance of the time critiquing the materials and discussing
options for making wide use of them. Click here for a longer description of ARQ itself,and links to other ARQ materials
