OUR RESULTS 2006 –1 student failed 2007-1 student failed Could we do it differently? Could we achieve better results? Did we enjoy it as much as they did? Could we /they have FUN?
FURTHER COMMENTS Should this questionnaire be the same for all disciplines? Audit of the feedback-when, how often? When should changes be implemented? Do we give them feedback about their feedback?
TWO WAY COMMUNICATION Open communication Clear communication Direct communication Ask your students-early informal feedback, one minute response, class committees, students reflection
TWO WAY FEEDBACK Teachers share results with students Ask for suggestions What would they do? What can they do to contribute to a better learning environment? Use feedback to develop dialogue Feedback creates the chance to express interests
ASK YOUR STUDENTS Early informal feedback One-minute response Class committees Reflect
TEACH THE TEACHER Do it yourself Self-evaluation DO WE NEED TO LEARN HOW TO TEACH?
FINAL SUGGESTION Getting a students point of view can be one of the best guides for how to organize your next lesson
