Strategies to Maximize the Impact of Feedback and Streamline Your Time
B. Jean Mandernach, Grand Canyon University
To increase the efficiency (and effectiveness) of feedback, you must address four key components of the online teaching experience: 1) Course Design—Integrate course components that provide automated feedback in response to individual student submissions. 2) Instructional Resources and Activities—Create resources and activities to decrease the amount of postassignment feedback required. 3) Integration of Feedback Banks—Utilize technology to automate and manage common, repetitive feedback to free instructional time for other activities. 4) Student Experience—Increase the impact of feedback on the student learning experience to ensure adequate return on instructional time investment.
