Small group instructional feedback, or SGIF, has arrived at Harper, and faculty and students are recommending that YOU try it! This 3-minute video gives an overview of what SGIF is and how it can help you and your students:

See what Harper faculty and students who have experienced SGIF are saying:

  • “I would encourage my peers to try SGIF. The discussion the students have with another faculty member allows the students to think about what is working, what is not working and what can be done to help improve their learning experience. It helps them remember that they must take an active role in their own learning. That the discussion takes place during the semester rather than at the end, enables changes to be made that may help more students succeed.”
    Julie Ellefson-Kuehn, Chemistry
  • “I would definitely encourage any faculty who are considering SGIF to do it. It’s a great way to show students you care about their engagement in the course, and it’s also a nice way to see how you might be able to improve your teaching while a course is in progress.”
    Lisa Blaylock, Mathematics
  • “It was a great way to voice concerns and have the instructor listen and make adjustments.”

  • “After SGIF, I asked more questions when I did not entirely understand the material.”
