An Experimental Comparison Of The Effect Of Teacher Versus Self‑Evaluation/Self‑Reflection Feedback On College Students’ Behavioral Observation Skills, Marcie N. Desrochers, Jie Zhang, Stacey L. Caron, Jenna Steinmiller

Education and Human Development Faculty Publications

An experimental investigation of the effectiveness of two types of feedback on college students’ acquisition of behavioral observation skills was conducted.

Participants in the teacher feedback condition scored higher on the post-training assignments and viewed it more positively than those in the self- evaluation/self-reflection condition.

The Undergraduate That Could: Crafting A Collaborative Student Training Program, Jennifer L.A. Whelan, Jared Andrew Rex Dec 2018

The Undergraduate That Could: Crafting A Collaborative Student Training Program, Jennifer L.A. Whelan, Jared Andrew Rex

Staff publications

Since the mid-19th century, student worker programs have been an integral component of academic libraries, and the evolution of the profession has put more students, even undergraduates, into positions with greater responsibility, raising questions about the level of expertise of which undergraduate students are capable. The authors address these questions through the lens of the collaborative redevelopment of two distinct library student worker programs at a small liberal arts college. Included is a discussion of successes and challenges, as well as a consideration of the benefits of a “cross-library” support system in developing such a program.

With the increasing ubiquity of social networking and online learning platforms, new opportunities for facilitating peer learning, have emerged. Within online courses – where students often study at geographically disparate locations – peer learning strategies assume arguably greater importance ...
