I think that having a final that counts a lot in your grade is not the best way to do things. It is sad for a student to work all term and then at the end, when there is nothing she/he can do about it, realize that she/he didn’t “get” the material! Likewise, though teacher evaluations of professors at the end of terms are nice and possibly the professor will take to heart the scores and comments so that subsequent classes are improved, it doesn’t help the student who is completing the evaluation, except sometimes for a feeling of revenge.
As former NYC Mayor Koch would say “How’m I doing? How’m I doing?” So I am asking you now, two weeks into the course, four weeks, six, eight, ten weeks, but in time to do something about it for you and other students in this session of the course. It is very import for all students to communicate where they are having trouble and thoughts on how I can help. It also helps if you find good things to point out and say “We should do more of that” I invite you to communicate your ideas on the course frequently.
I am looking for feedback on course content and course delivery techniques. When are we doing things where the time expended is not worth it in terms of the material learned.
You can communicate by:
|Sending me email|
|Completing this "How'm I doing" form|
Please take the correct survey for the course you are taking:
