Presentation Title: Minimal Effort, Maximum Results: Using RECAP for formative assessment and feedback with students
Presentation Description : This presentation will focus on the presenters’ efforts to foster student engagement, self-reflection and facilitate regular formative assessment within courses. RECAP is a simple weekly routine using short teacher-created videos and structured reflection prompts that can be implemented within Canvas. It is useful in online, asynchronous courses, and it also provides a consistent framework for students and instructors to engage within in-person courses and internships. RECAP is a framework that engages students by having them Reflect on their week; Explain what they learned; Compare their work to guidance provided by an teacher/supervisor; Act on feedback provided; and Plan for success for the upcoming week. As RECAP is simple in its implementation yet effective in the quality of information conveyed, instructors are able to deepen connections and refine remote relationships without feeling as if they are creating additional work for themselves or their students. Students benefit from engaging more, as well as being able to practice self-reflection, self-regulation, and metacognition. Faculty benefit from being able to give just-in-time feedback and keep tabs on clarity of the material.
Participants will be introduced to RECAP, shown examples of course implementation and utilization, review student feedback related to RECAP, and then given a planning guide and asked to think about and share with the group how they might be able to use RECAP in their courses. Participants will have time to collaborate and brainstorm with colleagues and the presenters on how the RECAP framework might address their specific course needs to better increase student engagement.
