C-I 19 Logo

This session includes two 15-minute presentations with time for Q&A.

Audio Feedback! Instructor Interactions that Motivate Students
Many studies have validated that online students prefer audio feedback over written feedback. Research also shows that when online students have the opportunity to hear their instructor deliver feedback, they feel more connected to a community of learners, have a stronger perception that their instructor is invested in their learning, and may be more likely to incorporate the feedback into their revision process. Voice feedback also fosters a more inclusive learning environment, supporting the needs of more learners including those who are native speakers of other languages.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1) Provide supportive feedback for students in Canvas using your own voice
2) Master the essentials for recording effective voice feedback in Canvas

ConferZoom for Dynamic Student Conferences
ConferZoom is a dynamic, easy-to-use video conference tool provided free to CCC faculty through CCCTechConnect. ConferZoom can increase interaction, develop community, improve retention, and promote equity. Presenters will discuss how faculty can facilitate synchronous student conferences while utilizing the ConferZoom Annotation and Save features.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1) Use ConferZoom for student conferences
2) Use ConferZoom Annotation and Save features during student conferences
