I forward this message to you as a model of what I hope we’ll be able to produce for the SPCS Pedagogy CoP on a regular basis. Please take a few minutes to review and tell me what you think — which features are useful, which features are useless, and which features make you excited. Any other feedback would be welcome, too!

Tips for the End of Term

  *   Cut down on grading time with these techniques:
     *   Assess one or two skills per assignment rather than every element.
     *   Be brief: Point out what is done well, identify errors, and suggest improvements.
     *   Give feedback in Canvas Speedgrader<https://dartmouth.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=75e9597888c614ad3f957725f&id=8a0daf07cd&e=2f74651b7c> or annotate written work in DocViewer<https://dartmouth.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=75e9597888c614ad3f957725f&id=00cbd4fd10&e=2f74651b7c> rather than by hand.
     *   Create a comment bank for feedback that you use repeatedly.
  *   Still feeling behind the grading curve? Bail yourself out for next term with a few ideas from the Chronicle of Higher Education<https://dartmouth.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=75e9597888c614ad3f957725f&id=5fa98e5be6&e=2f74651b7c>.
  *   Visit the Registrar's guide for faculty on using Banner Student<https://dartmouth.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=75e9597888c614ad3f957725f&id=68d807c49a&e=2f74651b7c> for instructions on submitting final grades, citations, and incompletes.
  *   As always, if you’d like to discuss any of the above, or have questions about your teaching, contact the Teaching & Learning Team<mailto:dcal at dartmouth.edu>.

Teaching Tools

  *   Getting ready for spring courses? Here’s a refresher on copying content from one Canvas course to another<https://dartmouth.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=75e9597888c614ad3f957725f&id=8718013501&e=2f74651b7c> rather than starting from scratch.
