BBA/iBBA Just-In-Time Teaching Feedback Process for Students
What is the Just-In-Time (JIT) Teaching Feedback Process? The JIT Teaching Feedback Process, jointly run by the UBC GradeBBA/iBBA Reps, and the Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence (SCTE) is an avenue for handling teaching issues if you would like the issue or concern to be handled anonymously, or if it is a concern that might be difficult for you, as a student in the class, to raise during the term.
The JIT Teaching Feedback Process was developed as a communication vehicle for resolving issues that arise in the classroom while the term is still in progress.
What is the Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence? The overarching goal of the Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence(SCTE) is to create an academic community within Schulich that is committed to teaching and learning excellence. A typical year’s activity includes providing development and support for over 200 full-time and part-time faculty members, conducting workshops and training, individual coaching, working through JIT issues as they arise in various courses, maintenance of the SCTE website, peer evaluation, overseeing the Seymour Schulich Awards for Teaching Excellence, as well as a range of other teaching and learning issues that arise in any particular year.
What are the goals of the Schulich Centre for Teaching Excellence?
build knowledge and skills to enhance course design, delivery, and assessment for both new and more experienced faculty
The SCTE and/or area coordinator works with the instructor to generate possible action steps to address the issue
Typical first action step is to suggest Interim Feedback be collected to assess the percentage of students in the class with the same concern
Other action steps often (but not always) involve opening up channels of communication so that the instructor and students can jointly solve the issue during the next class, as well as other interventions
Sometimes, if needed, SCTE will escalate the issue to the Area Coordinator/Associate Dean Academic
Instructor discusses the issue/addresses the issue in the next class
After next class, SCTE gathers feedback from:
Student(s) raising concern
Grade Rep/iBBA Rep (if in class)
SCTE will determine whether any further action is required
