MSU educators are invited to participate in a workshop about giving meaningful feedback to students. This workshop is open to veterans of the Fall 2020 three-part series and new attendees who are interested in learning about strategies and tools for meaningful feedback.


The recorded video for the workshop can be found here. 


The workshop aims to provide educators with an interdisciplinary space and community to consider ways of providing effective and meaningful feedback to students. The professional development provided will offer peer-to-peer interaction with information and discussion that considers feedback strategies and tools across disciplines. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about strategies and tools for providing feedback to students, exchange ideas about feedback, and practice and implement ideas about feedback for course design, pedagogy, and practice.


By participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:


  • Identify characteristics of meaningful feedback and its importance for student learning
  • Reflect on ways we already use feedback in our classrooms
  • Consider opportunities and challenges for feedback in our classrooms
  • Generate ideas with colleagues on how to implement feedback in the classroom (both small and large classrooms) 
  • Develop and revise ideas for implementing feedback in the classroom, based on workshop discussions and peer feedback
  • Create short- and long-term goals for implementing ideas into the classroom
  • Connect with educators across campus to build community and conversation


The Meaningful Feedback Workshop will take place on Friday, February 26, 2021 from noon-2 p.m. EST.
