Teaching and Learning

Support for Teaching Seminar

"Student Voices: How to get to deeper evaluation of your course" Presented by Megan Otis, The Teaching and Learning Academy, Western Washington University, US.

Receiving student feedback at the end of a course, using the standard or slightly modified questionnaires, can sometimes elicit useful information. However, can we enrich this evaluation, and the impact on student learning, by taking a more scholarly approach? Megan Otis, a graduate student at Western Washington University (WWU) is co-editor of the popular book ‘Engaging Student Voices in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning’ (Stylus, 2010). She will share with us some of her experiences from her 7 years as a student and scholar in WWU's Teaching and Learning Academy. She will also share some general principles and promising practices for partnering with students in researching teaching and learning. Megan asks among other things "What roles can or should students have in the scholarship of teaching and learning? And if students are more than just research subjects, what are the benefits and challenges?” A light lunch will be available from 12.15pm
