I have been on Twitter for 8 months and spent some time this weekend evaluating the experience. I am a firm believer in evaluation and using feedback to improve and refine practice. Recently, I forwarded a brief survey to faculty to use at the end of 3rd quarter. They were asked to administer this survey to all students in each of their classes. The feedback received was helpful and for some, rather surprising.
The questions are:
The classroom is a positive evironment in which to learn:
Class discussions, activities and projects are well organized
The material covered is interesting or relevant to the students' lives
How could this be a better course for you? Please list at least one item
What for you is the best part of the course and should continue. Please list at least one item
As far as my own evaluation, Vince Day’s most recent post was tremendously helpful as I considered my role on Twitter. He mentions three key methods of using Twitter: watch, talk, produce. Since my start on Twitter 8 months ago, I have done significant watching. Looks like my personal 4th quarter will focus on talk and produce. I better get going!
