Speaking through the Stack Efficiently and Painlessly: Grading via Podcasts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

To begin, the presenter will address the vast amount of time instructors spend evaluating student work, calling to mind the formidable "stacks" of submitted assignments and the challenge to provide thoughtful feedback that not only enhances student learning, but also can be offered in a quick turnaround time.

Following this, she will explain how she has transitioned from providing her students with standard written feedback to a new format: spoken feedback via podcasts. While explaining this process, she will highlight podcasting technologies that not only are accessible and ubiquitous, but also can be easily transmitted to students.

To close the session, the presenter will share student feedback that she has culled from the past three semesters across six sections of undergraduate GWS courses to provide evidence that students have found this practice more thorough, more easy to understand, more helpful for retention, and more personalized than the standard written feedback they regularly receive.

Throughout the session, sample podcasts will be provided so participants can understand how feedback can be provided in an efficient yet thorough fashion. Additionally, the presenter will share how the practice of speaking feedback has made the grading process a more pleasant, quicker experience, which is useful for any instructor carrying a full course load.
