Agile Peer Feedback in the Classroom

30 minutes
Oral Presentation

Do you want to integrate peer-to-peer feedback into your classroom but you are not sure where to start? This presentation explains how higher education instructors can use stand-up meetings and work reviews as a forum for students to exchange feedback on their work, either in-person or online. Using stand-up meetings and work reviews encourages positive collaboration between students and helps them succeed at challenging projects. These concepts are rooted in the Agile software development methodology but are broadly applicable to any type of classroom.
1. Define a stand-up meeting and name the three pieces of information each participant is required to state at the meeting.
2. Explain the benefits of using peer-to-peer feedback.
3. Describe how to implement a student work review in a face-to-face or online course.
