I just reviewed course evaluations from last semester. Overall they were quite positive, with useful feedback. My favorite comment from my Development to Globalization class:
“The teaching style was my favorite. I’ve never seen anybody draw and write such illegible things that end up making me understand exactly what is being said. It’s quite funny to me.”
While I wouldn’t say all of my whiteboards are illegible, and I would tend to blame the low quality of whiteboards and markers with which I have to practice my craft, occasionally even I would have to agree with this student’s comments. Here is an example I snapped last semester from my lecture on post-Fordism and outsourcing. I consider it an opportunity for students to hone their note-taking skills.
