I just reviewed course evaluations from last semester. Overall they were quite positive and some had some useful feedback. My favorite comment:
“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.”
It just so happens that I have an image from the class to which I think this student was referring. I am a firm believer that you have to be there to be part of class, and I never share copies of my notes or digital presentations. There is no board as smart as an attentive and participating note-taker.
College is all about being there and I was very pleased that this person got it and even seemed to enjoy it!
