Open Session Limited to 60 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

Teachers may frequently ask: How do I quickly capture what students know and what they don’t? This presentation introduces a formative feedback method, the muddiest point survey, used in engineering classes to facilitate reflective teaching. For instructors, the muddiest point survey helps them gain valuable insights into students’ learning and think deeply about their teaching; whereas for students, it encourages learning reflection on a regular basis. This method also creates a more consistent means for students to communicate their learning needs with instructors. Because the muddiest point data collection is done automatically through Blackboard, this process saves instructor’s time and makes the implementation of this method feasible for both large and small classes. This presentation will demonstrate how the muddiest point survey has both changed instructors’ perception towards more student-centered teaching, and improved overall student learning.
