Details: The provision of student feedback is a challenging and resource intensive task for any instructor but at the same time it has the potential of significantly improve the overall quality of a learning experience. This challenge is magnified even further in the context of large student cohorts. Current initiatives such as the one captured by the OnTask project have explored how to use data about student engagement to support instructors of large student cohorts in this process. But despite the use of technology there are still important aspects to consider. What is the ideal tone of the message? Should they focus on the material? Assessments? Strategies? How often is idea to send these messages? In this talk we will cover some principles and examples of how instructors are addressing the problem.
