Formative Feedback and Writing Feb. 20

The end of the week features a Formative Feedback and Writing workshop on Friday, Feb. 20, from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Faculty Development Center, room 420 in the Library.

Roshaunda Cade, assistant director of the Academic Resource Center, will lead this workshop where she will discuss the concept of formative assessment and its benefits. She will provide strategies to give formative feedback to students. Giving formative feedback highlights faculty as disciplinary experts while requiring students to become responsible for their own learning.

Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to develop and practice feedback strategies.
