In this episode Explorance Product Analyst Nitin Sharma speaks with Parrish Waters, Assistant Professor at the University of Mary Washington. He gives a bit of background regarding how he got into teaching and what brought him to Mary Washington. We also touch on how formative feedback is used in his classroom. Parrish realized early on in his career that he could get more value in having students provide input on his teaching throughout the semester instead of just on end of term evaluations.
Initially, the online surveys he used to solicit feedback from students were lacking but soon discovered Bluepulse. With Bluepulse, Parrish has seen how it has enabled a sense of community in the classroom amongst students and increased their engagement with course materials. Also discussed is where he thinks the future of formative feedback is headed and how Bluepulse can be used for professors outside of the classroom.
