Kritik Research Session: Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy
Engaging Students and Saving Time with Calibrated Peer-grading and Group work
Peer assessment in higher education results in positive effects on students’ writing, communication, and critical analysis skills.
Through peer evaluation, students are able to view the work of their peers and critically analyze its effectiveness, helping them produce higher quality work themselves.
Students are more likely to engage and improve with student feedback as opposed to teacher feedback. Provide that opportunity to your students through Kritik
Save time on grading while enabling students to creatively demonstrate their understanding of materials.
The new reality of higher education has also brought a new set of challenges to educators and students: How do you facilitate a social-academic community when you can’t see anyone face-to-face without spending countless hours grading? During this session, we will explore how leading educators such as Dr. David Wang and Professor Laura Reid have successfully introduced calibrated peer-assessment and group-work into their courses leading to time saved, and higher levels of knowledge retention and critical thinking amongst their students. Additionally, we discuss how this newly freed-up time affords professors the opportunity to do more personalized coaching, and to focus on the students who need their help the most.
