Tools and Metrics for Interactive Feedback and Skill Development
About this talk:
Dr. Franz reflects on her use of GoReact.com as a platform for students to give pre-recorded asynchronous video presentations online, complete with valuable tools and metrics for interactive feedback and Q&A from faculty and peers. While her experience and insight is based on using this with >600 presenters in a two-day virtual conference, she anticipates the technology will offer pedagogical value for weekly online assignments that promote communication skills, content mastery, self reflection and student engagement via peer review of presentations.
