Peter Maille, Ph.D.
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Peter Maille, Ph.D., associate professor of economics, is the guest speaker for EOU’s first colloquium of winter term Thursday, Jan. 8.
His presentation on “Teaching Students to Fail: Negative Consequences of Negative Feedback” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception will follow.
The discussion will focus on a simple theoretical model and experimental evidence relating negative feedback to academic performance. Specifically, Maille explores the possibility that, for some students, negative feedback may be counter-productive.
Maille believes this model could prove useful on a number of fronts. For example, it could help refine academic probation/suspension policies, inform a student “Bill of Rights” for middle and high school students, and boost understanding of student behavior in general.
