Small Group Instructional Feedback
The SGIF technique started in Seattle at the University of Washington under the guidance of Dr. Joseph Clark. SGIF arose out of a recognized need for an alternative to course evaluation questionnaires. The SGIF uses a process of small group and large group consensus and provides more meaningful feedback to both faculty and students. Since the feedback is presented to the instructor in a completely anonymous form, students feel free to make honest assessments of the class. In addition, the students feel that their comments have some real impact and that they are making a useful contribution to the course.
