Student Feedback I used the Podcast in my prep for the upcoming exam. It is a wonderful review and basically is more class time outside of class. I love the podcast! I used the Quiz Solution Podcasts this week by first viewing my quiz and how I worked through the problems, then I viewed how Dr. Hoar worked through the problems and noted any significant moves toward completing the problems with which I struggled.
Student Feedback At first, I just watched and listened. Then, the second time around I compared the way Dr. Hoar solved the problem to the way I did and saw where I made some of my mistakes. I moved the cursor along without sound so I could track the steps I took with the steps Dr. Hoar took while he worked it out. If I didn't understand what he did, I put the sound on.
Why Student-Generated Podcasts? Collaboration with instructors Increase confidence as future educator. –Determine the goal of the problem –Identify student misconceptions –Reflective lesson planning KellyMarenKristin
