What are the factors that hold students back from learning and performing the best they can? How should students go about learning new content? In this interactive workshop, we will introduce and explore students’ mindsets—their identities, insecurities, and beliefs about intelligence and how one should learn—that enter the classroom with them and that can affect their learning before learning has even begun. You will work in small groups to discuss and develop strategies that can be implemented in your classroom to address these issues.

Feedback on both short and lengthy written assignments plays a critical role in students' learning about disciplinary content, as well as communication conventions. Yet this mode of instruction often yields dissatisfaction from both students and instructors. In this workshop, we consider how to improve the effectiveness of written feedback to ensure that the time and effort instructors put into providing feedback fosters student learning. We identify challenges to providing feedback to students, define strategies for improving our approaches, and practice hands-on feedback techniques.
