Hubert.ai Chats with Your Students to Obtain Course Feedback

Published November 1, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

While obtaining student feedback has been an integral part of my teaching practices from the very beginning, it was never a truly satisfying or enjoyable activity. Over the years, I experimented with different ways of obtaining feedback, most of which were either very labour-intensive (open-ended questions) or overly formalised (multiple-choice questions or ratings). The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) has reached a point where chatbots can now handle text-based conversations and analyze them. This term, I am experimenting with Hubert.ai, a platform that harnesses the power of AI to obtain meaningful feedback through chat sessions with my students. So far, this has proven to be an effective and engaging format for everyone involved.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
