Request Mid-Semester Teaching Feedback

Dear Faculty,


The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is very excited to invite you to participate in the Spring Mid-Semester Feedback (MSF) Program.  This valuable opportunity solicits anonymous feedback from students and faculty about their course experience at or around mid-semester. The student feedback process provides opportunity for positive changes that support students' learning.  This incredible discovery process has been shown to improve teaching and student learning, as well as improve higher overall evaluations at end of term (Cohen, 1980; Murray, 2007).

Businesses run on meetings. They are the focal point of a team's energy and a primary driver of progress. That's why unproductive and unsuccessful meetings can sap the energy from a workplace and cause problems across the business.
