Teaching Unprepared Students: The Importance of Increasing Relevance

Teaching Unprepared Students: The Importance of Increasing Relevance | for the AVIDers | Scoop.it

It is difficult to teach if students are unprepared to learn. In a 2013 Faculty Focus reader survey, faculty were asked to rank their biggest day-to-day challenges. “Students who are not prepared for the rigors of college” and “Students who come to class unprepared” finished in a statistical dead heat as the #1 challenge; roughly 30% of the respondees rated both challenges as “very problematic.”

Providing Timely and Frequent Feedback

Providing Timely and Frequent Feedback | for the AVIDers | Scoop.it

If students are to benefit from feedback, it must not only be timely and frequent, but also useful for improving performance by addressing three areas: what students did well, what students need to improve on, and how to make this improvement. Feedback can take a variety of forms: 1) formative/summative, 2) individual/group, 3) written/coded comments, and 4) charts and rubrics of essential characteristics of assignments. Although giving detailed feedback is important, it may be even more important to give it in a timely manner (8, p.17). We will consider how to accomplish both, as well as how to encourage students to carefully read and use our feedback.

Study documents how much students text during class | Inside Higher Ed | for the AVIDers | Scoop.it

If you are leading a class and imagine that students seem more distracted than ever by their digital devices, it's not your imagination. And they aren't just checking their e-mail a single time.

A new study has found that more than 90 percent of students admit to using their devices for non-class activities during class times. Less than 8 percent said that they never do so.
