Mid-semester Feedback: FACT Program

Are you interested in gathering student mid-semester feedback to improve your course this semester, rather than waiting for course evaluations at the end of the semester? Would you like to foster rapport with your students?

Through the Formative Assessment of Classroom Teaching (FACT) program, trained Consultants facilitate guided discussions with your students and then share their anonymous feedback with you. This is available for both face-to-face and online classes (via Zoom or asynchronous).

Learn more about the FACT program and request a FACT by February 21.
