There’s a change afoot at McGill. More and more people on campus are interested in changing things up – crossing boundaries, breaking down silos, and using new technologies. Develop your teaching by engaging in a conversation around the Teaching for Learning Blog.
In many courses, the most common document used to assess student learning is the essay or term paper. These types of assignments, however, often present evaluation nightmares for the teachers who have to grade them.
Want to receive useful feedback from students about your course mid-term? This can help you make changes immediately as well as encourage participation in end-of-course evaluations. Effective strategies include setting up an online survey using myCourses or having an in-class student-led forum.
