A RiSE Center Campus Programs Event: Evaluating your Evaluations – Making Good Use of Student Feedback

November 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm

In this interactive workshop, participants will have opportunities to work with education researchers from the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education (RiSE Center) to become familiar with the ways undergraduates provide feedback, learn about reading and responding to student feedback, and consider ways to use student feedback productively.

Facilitators:

MacKenzie R. Stetzer is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and is a member of the RiSE Center who has been involved in the development of research-based instructional materials in physics and physical science since 2001.  He also has extensive experience in the preparation and professional development of K-12 teachers, undergraduate Learning Assistants, graduate Teaching Assistants, and university instructors.

Natasha Speer is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics and is a member of the RiSE Center. Her work focuses on undergraduate mathematics and teaching-related professional development for instructors. This work includes the design of materials and programs to support instructor learning as well as research into the knowledge instructors used when implementing active learning approaches with students.

Erin Vinson is the Campus Programs Coordinator at the RiSE Center and has been involved with discipline-based education research at the University of Maine since 2014, at both the RiSE Center and the School of Biology and Ecology.  Erin works closely with both UMaine faculty and undergraduate Maine Learning Assistants to improve undergraduate STEM education for all.
