Small Group Feedback Session

Main content start

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) offers Small Group Feedback Session (SGFS), where a trained evaluator comes to your class during the last 20 minutes and, in your absence, places your students in small groups. Each group comes to a consensus on what is contributing to their learning in the class, what needs improvement, and (optionally) what students themselves can do to improve the course. The evaluator summarizes these responses, making them as specific as possible and resolving or clarifying contradictions among groups, and presents them to you later in a private consultation.

Additional information and a link to schedule a SGFS session is available on the CTL's Mid-Term Student Feedback page.
