WORKING OUT LOUD
Studied his own teaching and determined that those who came to class and those who watched via video did equally well in the class
I feel like I’m just breaking through now. I remember what it was like at the beginning.
Waiting until the end of the semester to get input from our students is too late
Evaluations are valuable; but it only helps you the next time you teach the class
Formal, anonymous surveys
* Customized end of semester surveys
* mid-semester surveys
* discussion boards
* in person:
* talking to students after class
* office hours
* regular lunches with students
* Reporting back about what you learned what your changing to respond
* Department-wide early warning systems—We’re trying this this year to give students in all our classes a chance to air concerns to the department early enough so we can do something about them.
