Using Small Group Instructional Feedback (SGIF) as a Formative Feedback Strategy for Audioconference Courses: Practical Guidelines for Audioconference Instructors and Facilitators.
Robinson, Kerry
The Small Group Instructional Feedback (SGIF) method was originally designed for face-to-face classrooms in 1976 by D. Joseph Clark to obtain formative feedback from students and help improve course quality and teacher effectiveness. In the SGIF method, a facilitator meets with students, gathers feedback on an instructor's performance, and reviews these students' comments, privately, with the instructor. This document provides a detailed set of guidelines for instructors and facilitators who wish to implement the SGIF method for audioconference courses. The method consists of five steps: (1) preparation; (2) conducting the audioconference SGIF session; (3) facilitator/instructor meetings to discuss student feedback; (4) instructor acknowledgement of feedback; and (5) follow-up meeting between facilitator and instructor. The benefits of SGIF, compared with questionnaire use, are discussed, and experience necessary to facilitators and instructors are described. A sample audioconference orientation questionnaire and SGIF form are appended. Contains 14 references. (EMH)
