Feedback can be a powerful tool to promote learning and encourage student persistence. The popularity of online courses changes the context in which feedback is provided. Faculty who are accustomed to teaching in a traditional setting may find this challenging. This session will help faculty apply best practices to feed up, feed back, and feed forward in ways that enhance studentsí learning, increase engagement, and build self-efficacy, even when teaching in a virtual setting.
