Recommendations on Classroom Feedback.
Miami-Dade Community Coll. District, FL.
Prepared by the Classroom Feedback Subcommittee of the Teaching/Learning Project, this report offers recommendations on "the sharing of constructive information between students and faculty relative to each other's performance through a process by which faculty learn about their teaching and students learn about their learning." After presenting this definition of classroom feedback, the report explains that the purpose of classroom feedback is to develop a variety of methods and data sources so that faculty can assess the immediate effectiveness of their teaching, guide their teaching, gain a long-term view of student performance, and provide evidence of successful teaching. After discussing the assumptions that guided the work of the committee, the report presents the following recommendations; (1) a Teaching/Learning Resource Center should be designated on each campus to provide resources for faculty who wish to implement classroom feedback; (2) time should be set aside to enable faculty to broaden their knowledge about the use of classroom feedback; (3) a modular format should be developed for a classroom feedback graduate course to provide independent learning opportunities for course segments; (4) budgetary commitments should be made to provide the time and financial support necessary for faculty to conduct classroom feedback projects; (5) opportunities should be provided for faculty to develop or reinforce their skills in conducting summative evaluations; (6) an improved Information Flow System should be devised to provide information about the progress students have made in the institution; and (7) efforts should continue to identify a variety of effective techniques to provide feedback to students about their learning. The original subcommittee report is attached. (JMC)
