Academic Innovation Virtual Event


Event Details

An important time to be good with words is when you are either giving or receiving  feedback. So join Professor Patrick Barry in a special Zoom session of the “Feedback Loops” course he teaches at the University of Michigan Law School. You’ll learn about written feedback. You’ll learn about spoken feedback. And with any luck, you’ll come away with a better understanding of how to achieve the right mix of encouragement and evaluation the next time somebody asks you for your input.
