Banner Self Service provides students, instructors and staff with a wide variety of information and services. As employees, you may already use Banner to determine leave balances, track available Tech Fit money, and access your pay information. While you may be aware that instructors can use Banner to submit grades and view teaching history, you may not know that you can use Banner to print a roster with student photos for each course you are teaching.
A photo roster of the students in your class can be very useful for many reasons. Some instructors find it helpful when getting to know their students early in the term. Some even study the roster before classes begin in order to better associate names and faces. The photo roster can also be a helpful resource when attempting to verify a specific student’s identity not only during class and group presentations, but for exams and office visits too. Please make sure you are following all FERPA guidelines related to confidential student information when you access and use student class or photo rosters from Banner Self Service.
You can watch this screencast to see a video demonstrating how to access your class photo roster. The CTL Tip of the Week is brought to you by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). You can see what’s going on there this week at our website.
