Takeaways- Assign roles to TAs rather than making all learn everything. Allow people to specialize instead of generalize. Prioritize communication through ticketing system instead of all communication coming in from different channels.

Is ticket system and email the best mode of communication for students? My students hate email. I wonder if more app based and social media like modes would be better for students... I wonder?



Quick clarification ... with regard to Peer Eval, the presenters recommended it as a strategy for high enrollment but indicated that the Peer Eval tool within Canvas has certain usability limitations and can sometimes be confusing to students.
