TMM 9: Bring What’s Broken!

May 3, 2021

We are now past the halfway point of the semester. You’ve hopefully collected student feedback and learned what’s not working in your course. Now what? 

Mentioned In This Video:

Feel free to share ways you are altering classes based on feedback on the Open Space document.

TMM 8: Feedback Again

April 26, 2021

Reflect on your response to requests for feedback. What motivates you, and how can you motivate your students?

Add feedback to All Our Ideas by clicking the choices you agree with and/or adding new options to the survey. Spend as little or as much time as you’d like clicking through choices:  http://www.allourideas.org/GCCTMM 

If you prefer a traditional survey format, add comments to the survey on the Open Space doc (labeled “Instructional Designer Feedback Request”). 

Other Considerations: 

  • Feedback format
    • Formal feedback: Google form, crowdsourcing tool like All Our Ideas, private comments, Blackboard survey, external survey software like SurveyMonkey
    • Informal feedback: Quick “temperature check” options such as using an emoji to signify a feeling, holding up cards on Zoom, sharing a gif, etc. 
  • Intrinsic/extrinsic motivation
  • Navigating to survey (less clicks is better)
  • If you use a Likert scale (rate from 1-5), note that studies show that participants are unlikely to choose the two extremes. Consider a seven-point scale instead. 

TMM 7: Feedback

April 19, 2021

We are about to reach the halfway point of the semester, a perfect time to collect student feedback. This video serves as a reminder

***Request: Carolyn appreciates your feedback regarding The Monday Minute series. She has included seven questions on the Open Space Document. Please type directly into this doc or add comments on the side. Thank you.***

Feedback Ideas: 

  • Platforms: 
    • Blackboard: “Survey” or “tests” tool
    • Google: Google Forms, Docs, or Jamboard (Forms would allow you to see results in graph form, Docs would allow students to see each other’s anonymous feedback and build off one another, Jamboard would create a sort of class whiteboard)
    • Padlet
  • Question Ideas: 
    • Keep it simple. Some form of what’s working, what’s not, what they like, what they’d improve. 
    • One format: 
      • 1. What are the strongest features of this course and of my teaching? In other words, what contributes most to your learning? 
      • 2. What specific suggestions do you have for changes that I can make to improve the course or how it is taught?
      • 3. Is the pace of the course: too fast just right too slow?
    • Give options. Tell students to leave at least X number of comments, so they can choose which questions to answer.
