The Small Group Instructional Feedback (SGIF) process is one of several formative evaluation of teaching services the Biggio Center offers. At approximately mid-semester, a Biggio consultant spends about thirty minutes in the classroom obtaining the students’ voluntary and anonymous perspectives about which aspects of the instructor’s teaching have been facilitating learning and suggestions for improvement. The feedback is summarized and reported to the instructor during a one-on-one, confidential consultation. Then, the instructor has the opportunity to make adjustments that will improve teaching. An announcement about how to request an SGIF session is disseminated at the beginning of each semester.
A second option is the BigMid Electronic Feedback process. Instructors are provided with a unique URL to forward to students and request that they complete the feedback. After a pre-determined time the responses are tallied and sent back to the instructor. Student responses are anonymous.
The Biggio Center will schedule feedback sessions between Feb. 6 and March 2nd for Spring 2012. To request Mid-Semester Feedback, please complete the form on this page and click Send. Download the Flyer for more details.
