What Can I Learn From Student Ratings?

While student ratings are dismissed by some educators for having little to offer, these ratings can in fact be highly beneficial to teachers who want to improve their skills. Students can provide helpful and legitimate feedback on what they feel they learned, workload levels, and observable behaviors that include the teacher’s pace, volume, clarity and organization.

Join TLS as we view the Magna 20-Minute Mentor video, "What Can I Learn From Student Ratings?" After the presentation, we will discuss as a small group of teaching peers.

Related handouts are available at: http://www.magnapubs.com/mentor-commons/?video=3125

This talk will present an overview of literature on best practices to promote diversity among the STEM faculty.  It will focus particularly on studies that quantify the cognitive shortcuts that we all make with respect to gender, and with respect to other aspects of diversity, as well as the impact that these have on the climate for and success of faculty underrepresented in STEM fields, including women.  Finally, it will discuss practices for recruiting and especially for retaining/mentoring faculty. 

For questions contact Kara Maki, 475-2541 or Kathy Stefanik 475-7843.

Lunch will be provided 12:15 – 1:00pm, Speaker 1:00-2:00pm.

This hands-on session will have you working side-by-side with Teaching & Learning Services Instructional Technology specialists while you prepare your course content within myCourses. The first half of this session will begin with an orientation to the core myCourses tools: Content, Dropbox, and Grades. During this segment, faculty will explore options for uploading and creating content in the most efficient ways, review some of the Dropbox productivity features to help manage student assignments and grading, and walk through the Grades tool set-up process. The second half of this session will then provide faculty an opportunity to apply these techniques with their own courses while TLS staff circulate to assist faculty. During this 90-minute session faculty will make progress towards:

  • Selecting the Content, Dropbox, and Grade customizations that best fit their course needs
  • Organizing course content in a way that compliments each course's schedule and activities
  • Building a course gradebook that reflects their course grading policy and process

Recognizing that each individual's progress towards the tasks above will vary, additional follow up with an Instructional Technology specialist can be arranged at a mutually convenient time and campus location! If you have any questions about this session, please contact Joseph Zelazny or Marybeth Koon.

Interpreting services can be requested through Access Services by going to: http://myaccess.rit.edu/.
