Blog Feedback Questionnaire

It’s that time of year – near the end of teaching term – when we start to get feedback on our lecturing from students in the form of completed module questionnaires. I always get very nervous when these evaluation questionnaires come back, especially when they’re for a module I’m doing for the first time. I do work quite hard on my teaching and I do care about it a lot, but that’s not enough to guarantee that the students respond positively.

This time I’m not only relieved but delighted with the returns from my Engineering Maths returns. The students have been very kind – and some of the write-in comments are actually rather lovely. Of course there are criticisms too but it’s all useful feedback, so I’m grateful for the students who bothered to fill them in and especially to those who wrote detailed textual comments.

Anyway, in the light of the students’ response to the quality of my lecturing I thought I’d try to gather similar feedback on the quality of my blogging. Please complete the following survey. Textual comments may be provided in the form of textual comments through the textual comment box below.

    Even after many years, I find it very stressful to read these. Even if the vast majority of the comments are positive, I fixate on the negative ones. But I agree that they are useful and instructive.

      The way I deal with this is by being very critical of myself – that prepares me for other people being critical and in any case however good you might be at lecturing you should always be trying to be better. I know some teaching staff who take any criticism at all very badly indeed, perhaps because it might impact promotion prospects, but I don’t think that’s a good way to be,

      Occasionally there are rather nasty personal comments which are a bit upsetting but I didn’t get any of those this year.

  2. Blogging this,
    Is far from poor.
    To read it so,
    I do adore.
    For evermore. 🙂
