Mid-semester is a tough time of year. Staying on top of your workload can mean the difference between ending the semester on a high note or a low note.

#1 Create an automated quiz in Canvas

If you’re not sure how to do this, stop by or call us at Faculty Commons!


#2 Contact the Office of Academic Enrichment about tutors

See if tutors are available for your course before midterms–don’t forget to let your students know about this resource!


#3 Reach out to your librarian to schedule a consultation or instruction session

Get your students prepared for their research projects by letting the Library help your students develop better research skills.


#4 Start a short teaching-reflections journal for your courses

  • Jot down a few remarks after each class session about what went right and what you could improve.
  • Use these notes to both improve the course next time you teach it, and streamline your process of documenting your teaching for promotion and tenure.


#5 Do a Stop-Start-Continue feedback exercise with your students

Check out this infographic for how to implement this easy exercise in your course.
