“I find the studentís biggest concerns center around trying to do it all, be the perfect undergrad or graduate student, perfect employee in a tight economy, and perfect spouse and/or parent. This incredible stress takes its toll on their lives and relationships. Understanding how to help them achieve balance makes for a better student and future alumni.”
~ Perry Francis
In our age of high stakes learning, testing, and employment, being able to offer effective feedback that supports student achievement is an essential part of any instructorís or administratorís toolbox. This presentation will focus on how to provide todayís college students with appropriate feedback that motivates student engagement while creating an atmosphere of respect and taking responsibility for oneís own learning. We will review the current research on motivation, the proper use of praise and criticism, and how to best use positive & negative reinforcement to support learning.

Participants will:
  • Identify the characteristics of effective feedback
  • How to effectively give negative feedback without building resistance from students
