How to create a positive learning environment with the Start-Stop-Continue app

Upcoming webinar explores how a remote student feedback app can improve classroom engagement

An upcoming webinar hosted by Mohawk College IDEAWORKS will explore how a Mohawk College-designed app has made it easier for students to be engaged in the classroom.

On November 5, Dr. Peter Basl, Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology at Mohawk College, will share how the Start-Stop-Continue app, currently available at the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store, can collect better student feedback, especially when teaching remotely.

The Start-Stop-Continue framework is currently used by educators to collect up-to-date in-class feedback from their students about what is useful, what is missing from the course and what should be removed. It is recommended by pedagogical experts as a tool to supplement or replace traditional end-of-term teaching evaluations.

Dr. Basl’s work addressed one of the main challenges with the Start-Stop-Continue feedback framework- that it was difficult and time-consuming to implement. Thanks to the app he created, the process of using Start-Stop-Continue is now highly scalable to large classrooms and in remote learning environments like the ones we have moved to due to the pandemic.

Since it was launched in August 2020, students have submitted over 2000 suggestions through the app.

The project was supported by the IDEAWORKS Catalyst Fund, which provides funding to support new applied research and innovative scholarship in teaching and learning at Mohawk College.

The free webinar will be held on November 5, 2020, from 2 p.m.- 3 p.m. and is open to Mohawk College employees, students and the public.
