Providing Feedback to Students on their Kelley Honors Senior Thesis 2022
Time commitment: 1-2 hours
Schedule: Flexible- You will work with a Kelley Honors student to schedule your session individually
Category: Classroom engagement
Kelley program: Undergraduate - Bloomington
Deadline to sign up to participate: October 28th, 2022
Kelley Honors students take an Honors Thesis course in which they work with faculty to submit a project for credit. The project must contain some academic vigor, but does not need to be a paper. Instead we encourage students to explore learning opportunities through projects, academic papers, addressing a specific issue or, thinking collaboratively about an issue that has peeked their interest.
Alumni volunteers do not need to read the project submission, nor is editing or research guidance expected (although it is allowed). You are not expected to supervise the project. We would ask that you provide at least one opportunity for the student to explain their main idea and to receive feedback. The communication need not be in person and does not require you to read the submission, instead the student should present their idea and ask for specific areas of feedback. After this communication, it is up to the volunteer if they wish to follow up, provide more feedback, etc.
What you will do as the alumni volunteer
- Speak with the student about their selected topic, guide the student in finding other sources, opportunities, and networking connections, and provide feedback on the project.
- Connect with Honors students with alumni to enhance their learning experience via feedback and communication.
