How much feedback is effective? Our desire to help students is what makes us effective teachers, but there can come a point of diminishing returns, where our enthusiasm and generosity start to work against learning. And for some of us there may be the feeling that if we don’t correct all the mistakes a student makes, we might be contributing to a culture of carelessness. You’ll be glad to know that a vast body of research on these very concerns has created a set of informed best practices from which any marker of student writing can find a balance between reasonable work load and maximal student benefit. Audience | VIU Campus CommunityDate | Tuesday, February 7Time | 3:30 - 4:30 pmLocation | Nanaimo Campus Library Building 305, Room 509Registration | InVIU Direct LinkQuestions | bill.roberson@viu.ca | Curriculum, Teaching and Learning Specialistfalse
