You can learn a great deal about how your students are learning in a course and what adjustments both you and your students might make by asking your students to give your course a mid-term evaluation or periodic feedback.
Using a formative course feedback tool such as the Plus/Delta tool creates an excellent opportunity to discuss the shared responsibility for teaching and learning in a course. You can describe what changes you will (or will not) implement due to their feedback and why.
To get started, view the newly updated Use formative course feedback from your students page.
With a joy for teaching,
