Facilitating reflection on student presentations: Using CLAS to promote critical self-reflection and online peer-review – May 8, 2017


Bill Gates’ 2013 TED talk suggestion that teachers need “real feedback” in the form of video recordings of their work points to the potential pedagogical value of seeing oneself present in front of a class. In this workshop, I will introduce a new, home-grown UBC tool – CLAS – designed to facilitate commentary on video-recordings, which I have used to enable students to see their own in-class presentations and give feedback to one another about those presentations. I will describe some of the affordances of CLAS and report both my own and students’ experiences using the program.

 Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
