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 activity is used to familiarize your students with the 3 stages of Kritik (Create, Evaluate, Feedback) and to get them thinking about the importance of feedback.


Overall Learning Objective:

  • To recognize the value of giving and receiving feedback.

Create Stage Objective:

  • To describe and evaluate the impact a piece of advice had on your life.

Evaluate Stage Objective:

  • Assess the creations of your peers to evaluate if they have met the creation stage objective and rubric criteria.

  • Support your evaluations with specific examples of what was done well and what could be improved, and use motivational language to encourage your peers.

Feedback Stage Objective:

  • Express how the evaluations you received from your peers do or do not help you understand what you did well, what you could have done better, and how motivational their language was.
