8 things students wish more professors would do…

In this short video (5:12), University of Denver (DU) students share what they wish more professors would do by:

  • Providing constructive feedback and encouragement
  • Recognizing student differences
  • Giving students opportunities to lead
  • Assigning roles for group projects
  • Prioritizing students over grades
  • Sharing their syllabus in advance
  • Providing opportunities for students to get to know one another
  • Using Canvas more consistently

This is the first installment of several video clips we’ll be creating from student video interviews and a student panel organized by the Office of Teaching & Learning for DU’s Teaching & Learning Week.

Special thanks to Alex Martinez his awesome video recording and editing skills!

ECAR Annual Study of Students and Technology

I’m excited that DU is participating in a national student technology survey sponsored by ECAR (Educause Center for Applied Research). The ECAR survey was distributed to DU undergraduates last week (3/8/13) and students have until April 11th to complete the anonymous survey. Last year over 195 institutions and 100,000 undergraduate students participated in this projects.
