FeedbackFruits & Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam winnen ‘Best Paper Award’ bij het EUNIS Congres 2022
Het ingezonden artikel van FeedbackFruits is geselecteerd voor de ‘Best Paper Award’ bij het EUNIS Congres 2022.
Two instructors of TIAS School of Business and Society enhanced asynchronous engagement in blended classrooms.
Instructors at Central Michigan University optimized the team-based learning process in a 200-level Biology course with FeedbackFruits tools.
Gunderson said that, "in early use of FeedbackFruits at Cornell, 92% of faculty found it easier to facilitate peer review assignments, which can be cumbersome to administer, especially in large classes."
"We used the tool FeedbackFruits to make this interactive: when the podcast paused, students typed their answer directly in a text field. The different exercises were introduced with different animations to make students aware of the particular skill they were practicing."
We found that configuring and utilising Feedback Fruits so that students could respond to the feedback they received from their peers helpful here, in that a dialogue was created between students regarding improving their team-working abilities based on feedback given and received.
In general, the peer reviews given by students were constructive and high quality. The activity provided two-way learning, and there was an overall improvement in the final reports. Students reported that conducting peer reviews led to improvements in their own writing.
Dr Susy Macqueen found setting up the activity "straightforward and intuitive", and she intends to "explore other FeedbackFruits tools with her undergraduate and postgraduate student cohorts."
