Your feedback on student work is vital in helping students learn to think critically. How can you make sure the feedback you’re providing is effective? How can you be sure that students will use your feedback?

In this first of a two-part series, join Paulette Swartzfager from the University Writing Center and Paul Tymann from the Department of Computer Science in a discussion of how to assess and articulate what we value, and how rubrics can help. We will discuss how you can effectively apply rubrics and what value they bring to the educational process for both faculty and students.  Participants will be encouraged to share their assessment challenges and participate in a rubric-design activity.

Part Two of this workshop happens November 28, when we come back together (and welcome additional participants) to discuss rubrics that we have customized or created and how we might best use these rubrics with students. Here is the registration link for Part Two: https://wallacecenter.rit.edu/events/register/index.cfm?eid=8354

All faculty are invited to the 3rd Annual Faculty Grants Showcase of examples highlighting grant-funded projects and kick off for this year’s grants. Faculty will learn more about the grants available from Faculty Career Development and the Office of the Provost. The goal of this showcase is to provide a sampling of what faculty have been able to accomplish with grants provided by Faculty Career Development and the Office of the Provost.  Drop in for a few minutes or stay the whole time!  Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Presenters will be listed in the fall semester.

Feedback from attendees on past Showcases:

  • Great to connect with colleagues across campus in other disciplines
  • Great networking event, in the past 2 years it has allowed me to meet new faculty, see how others are approaching mentoring, and always gets me thinking of ways to collaborate outside my college.
  • Liked the 5 minute explanations. It was good to hear what they are doing with the funds they are awarded.
  • Excellent event to make us aware of what others are doing. Many new faculty were there and it allows them to ease their apprehension by seeing successes.
  • Nice to know what the faculty are doing with the grants to support their scholarship and teaching activities. This serves as an inspiration for me to do the same in the future.
  • Good chance to touch base with colleagues and hear (and see) what others are doing.
  • Seems money is being used wisely to help with faculty research and collaboration. Good job!

Bouncing Back:  Anticipating and Addressing Editorial Feedback on Scholarly Manuscripts
Sharon F. Cramer, PhD, SUNY Distinguished Service Professor Emerita and Author

Guest presenter Sharon Cramer facilitates this interactive and practical faculty workshop covering strategies for academic writers whose momentum stops before or after editorial feedback. Topics include methods academic writers might use to successfully move a scholarly work from concept to publication, and offers participants a refreshing alternative to guilt-producing avoidance of half-finished or rejected manuscripts. Session participants can expect to:

  • Review obstacles faced when making minimal progress toward completion of a scholarly project.
  • Dissect examples of feedback to authors.
  • Highlight steps to be taken when article is received back from journal editor.
  • End with a semi-optimistic outlook toward all aspects of the publication process.
Join us and get motivated! Lunch will be provided! 

The workshop is based on Cramer's recent publications: 

Stivers, J. & Cramer, S. F. (May 2017).   From Rejected to Accepted: Part 2—Preparing a Rejected Manuscript for a New Journal.  The Journal of Faculty Development, 31(2), 63-65. Permanent link to online article in RIT Library
