Intro to Kritik - A video for your students

To ensure your students understand what Kritik is all about, please share this video with them at the beginning of the term. The video outlines the skills they will gain from using Kritik, how the three stages work, and how to be an effective evaluator.

The Intro to Kritik Activity

The Intro to Kritik Activity is a short, pre-made activity in your course that helps make Kritik a smooth adoption for both the instructor and students. The best way to provide students with hands-on experience with Kritik is to conduct this activity within the first week of class as the first activity. Communicate that it is used to familiarize students with the 3 stages of Kritik (Create, Evaluate, Feedback) and to get them thinking about the importance of feedback.
