Posted by & filed under Online Teaching Resources.

A friend of mine (also an online instructor) and I were chatting over coffee the other day. She was telling me she spends hours providing thoughtful feedback on her students’ essays, only to find out that a large proportion of them aren’t always reading that feedback (as suggested by some of the questions they ask later). I commiserated – it is heartbreaking to think that all that time we spend providing that detailed, formative feedback (the kind we know is the best kind to give in any educational modality, but particularly online) is not necessarily reciprocated by all students.

Why is that? We came up with a few hypotheses over our scones and lattes. One is that, over time, students have been trained to be so grade-focused that the number remains the “feedback” students are most drawn too. They feel it tells them all they need to know. Another hypothesis is that feedback can be overwhelming sometimes, especially for students who need a lot of work. We also wondered if students might not see feedback as a communication opportunity between themselves and the instructor. Rather more of a one-way street. If student saw feedback as a two-way street, would they be more likely to read and digest the feedback?

Dr. Bruce Johnson, a member of our AdjunctWorld community, wrote an article on this topic titled 4 Steps to Prompt Student Responsiveness to Your Feedback. In it, he describes some methods to encourage this two-way street. I’ll summarize a few of them here and add a couple of my own ideas for encouraging students to read feedback as well.

1) Ask thought-provoking questions in your feedback. Nothing pulls a response from students more than asking them a question. The question opens a door and, if you ask one that has them follow up on a thought, an aspect of the reading, or otherwise think critically, then you are getting what I call a “two-fer” – you are inviting students to engage with the feedback while providing an additional learning opportunity.

I’ll add that sometimes a simple question or comment can encourage a student to engage in conversation with you. I might say something like “I can tell you had fun with this assignment, Mary. Did you?” Or, if the essay or assignment had them make a choice, comment on the choice. For instance, I often have my students apply psychological theories to a character from their favorite movie, show, or book. If I happen to also be a big fan of that movie, show, or book, I’ll say so and this often promotes comfortable conversation (as well as more openness to your feedback). In other words, if you deliver your feedback in a conversational tone, the feedback will feel like – and therefore pull – a conversation.

2) Especially if a student is really struggling, require follow-through. Tell students they will need to read the feedback for an important opportunity for follow through – one that might be necessary for the assignment’s completion.

3) Encourage students to assess their learning themselves, prior to receiving a grade. As Johnson writes, “Through the use of a non-graded activity such as a self-check, students can be encouraged to ask questions and this is likely to provide you with an opportunity to offer developmental guidance, resources, and techniques. This would also enhance the feedback provided as you can relate their response or assignment back to discussions you had about their progress in the prior self-assessment.

Another hypothesis my coffee date and I came up with:

Titrate our feedback to the developmental level of the student. If a student is obviously struggling with college level writing, choose your battles. Choose 3 or 4 concrete things they can work on between now and the next paper to improve. And then, on the next assignment, add a couple of more suggestions. This can help alleviate the sense of “feedback overload” that can be discouraging to a student who is really trying, but needs some extra help.

Do you have any ideas for encouraging student review of and response to your assignment feedback? Please share by leaving a comment below!

Guest Blogger: Lesa Hammond, CEO Prof360

As a former chief human resources officer at three universities and the current CEO of Prof360, I am often asked, “How can I get a teaching job at a university?”

Landing your first part-time faculty job in higher education can be challenging, especially if you do not have prior teaching experience. However, here are some ways to stand out and possibly pick up that first position:

 

Create a CV 

A curriculum vitae or CV speaks the language of academia. A CV differs from a resume in many ways. It is not uncommon to see CVs that are 5 – 10 pages long. Creating a well-written CV is a lot of work, but it is important if you want to stand out among the many resumes of equally qualified practitioners who are not academics. Here are some quick tips to writing a CV:

  • Education is at the top no matter how long you have been working or how long ago it was that you got the degree.
  • Work experience is similar to what is in a good resume. List key accomplishments not tasks and go back as far as is relevant. Don’t cut it off at 10 years.
  • Teaching experience includes every course you have ever taught.
  • List every time you have written an article that was published, written a book, done substantial research, been interviewed as an expert, or presented at a conference.

Network

If you know someone already teaching at a college or university make sure they know you are interested. Ask them how they got their job. This is particularly successful if they work in the same field, have similar expertise or interests as you. This is actually one of the most common ways people get teaching assignments.

Teach

It may sound ridiculous to suggest that you teach, since that is what you are trying to do; but I am serious. Teach somewhere.

  • Teach high school. If you have taught high school, it can count. Unfortunately, elementary school doesn’t count unless you are applying to teach elementary ed.
  • Teach a community-based program. There are programs put on by the department of parks and recreation in most communities. Some non-profits also have courses you could teach.
  • Teach at a college or university extension. Extended education programs are available at many community colleges and universities. These are generally non-credit courses that do not lead to a degree, but they may lead to a certificate. Some of the courses are academic in nature and other are just for fun. You could also go to your local community college or community center to propose a course to teach through their extended education programs.
  • Create your own course(s) and teach online. There are many software programs to help you develop online classes. Udemy is one example. You can teach your own courses online to demonstrate your knowledge and skills. You might even make a little extra money.
  • Conduct corporate training: This is not usually considered a full substitute for university teaching experience, but it is a start and some schools will consider it as teaching experience.

Make Presentations

Get out there and share your knowledge by making presentations. Contact organizations that have speakers each month and let them know that you would like to be a speaker for them. Create a one-page bio with a photo and share that with the organizations. List your topics. Remember to add any speaking engagements to your CV.

Develop a Course for a University

Create a course syllabus for a course you could teach. Create a PowerPoint presentation with it if that makes sense. Then make an appointment with the department chair or program director for the academic program where you want to teach. Propose your new course. Make sure it fits within the curriculum and there isn’t already a similar course.

Continue to add to your CV and cast a wide net. Look for open positions on AdjunctWorld and other job sites. When you find a position that meets your skills, send your CV with a cover letter explaining why you want to teach and why you want to teach for that college or university. Once you have a good CV, you can also sign up with Prof360. We help universities find part-time faculty, by recruiting and vetting applicants and presenting the most qualified candidates.

If you have a strong desire to teach part-time, and you are willing to put forth the effort, you have a good chance of making it happen.

 

Prof360 was founded with adjunct faculty in mind. One of their services includes matching colleges and universities with part-time faculty that meet their requirements. AdjunctWorld and Prof360 have partnered to increase the options for our members. AdjunctWorld members can signup with Prof360 as another way to potentially secure part-time faculty positions. http://profhire.com/applicant
