Department Colloquium - October 3, 2014 - David Daniels (James Madison University)

Preaching or Teaching: Translating Psychological Science to Useable Classroom Practice.

Whether face-to-face or online, giving feedback to students is integral to the teaching-learning process. This session will help faculty retain rigor in their classes without overextending themselves. Participants will examine principles suggested by research that enhance the effectiveness of feedback, and will learn techniques to streamline the feedback process.
