I have found that "The Art of Possibility" has been an interesting read and also a fast one.
This week I enjoyed hearing about the 'White Sheets" the author would give to the orchestra as a way for them to critique him and also communicate their needs. I found this part of the book to directly relate to the ADDIE model we have studied through the EMDT program. I have always put value into the evaluation and and have began to use this method in my class as well. During the year when the students are given progress reports or final quarterly grades, I allow them to also grade me and give me ideas on how I can improve what we covered.
Marc, I also liked the section of the reading on “White Sheets.” I think it’s a great idea to have our students critique us and give us feedback. I think it’s the best way for us as educators to ensure best practices in our work. It let’s us know first hand what is working and what isn’t so that we can make the necessary adjustments to improve how we deliver instruction and even in some cases the way we deliver instruction. I think your survey accomplishes this same goal.
