Default Re: When the Teacher Becomes the Student

Context matters here too. If I speak to students during personal conferences, I elicit a different type of feedback than during casual cross-campus conversations. Likewise, I have found it quite useful to provide ample opportunity for students to contribute to the class - from giving presentations and writing peer evaluations. Finally, one of my tricks is asking a question on every attendance sheet to help build class rapport and provide opportunities for students to share and reflect on the course content.
Great discussion!
