8 Practical Tools to Easily Gather Student Feeback

8 Practical Tools to Easily Gather Student Feeback | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

Students feedback can sometimes host a treasure trove of new insights not only about their own comprehension but also about our teaching. Giving students the opportunity to share their own response on the learning taking place in the classroom is highly beneficial to them particularly in the way they position themselves vis a vis the content being taught. They also feel empowered because they know their voice does matter and therefore become more engaged and involved in the learning/teaching process.
