SET launches new speaker series

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 13:47

The School of Education and Technology is proud to present a bi-monthly speaker series, SET Presents, where university faculty and their colleagues share topics with an educational focus.

A Lunch ‘n’ Learn-style event, the first SET Presents will happen Thursday Jan. 18 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Jo Axe and Theresa Bell will discuss Green-lighting feedback: Improving the effectiveness and efficiency of feedback on student writing.

Providing feedback on student writing is an essential but time-consuming aspect of grading papers. Using the metaphor of a traffic light, this interactive session will offer participants suggestions and resources for green-lighting feedback by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of feedback comments. 

After taking part in this session, it is expected that participants will be better able to: appreciate the impact of feedback on student writing, reflect more fully on the challenges associated with red-light and yellow-light feedback and understand key considerations for providing green-light feedback.


First in SET's new speaker series explores improving the effectiveness of feedback on student writing.
