Time Management for Efficient Grading 03/08/23

Our discussion will focus primarily on strategies for efficient grading and substantive feedback in asynchronous online classes. Attention will be given to the balance necessary for adjunct faculty who might find short grading turnaround challenging, while also maintaining a full-time job. Our target audience is online instructors, but all are welcome. Come with your questions, suggestions, and best practices to share with your peers!

In order to support our faculty, CELT has investigated and used multiple models of teaching effectiveness which frame evaluation and feedback to faculty on their teaching. Learn about models in use, where we can obtain data on elements of these models, and how you can provide challenge and support through feedback to faculty through the teaching observation process and reviewing syllabi and courses.  Future reports from Blackboard Learn will also be discussed.
