Not everything goes as planned, or goes well. Just as often unanticipated moments make our day!
Given that FYS strives to be a learning organization, I think it would be great to get a little introspective…How’d your day go? What can we learn from your experiences, good and bad?
I’ll start. I needed to do a better job of developing questions that lead to cross-talk, not Q&A with me. I need better ways to inject ideas that flourish into discussion. Some of this will be a factor of time, but my actions can dictate how much time. Today I told them how I expected this – but than failed to model it.
On the other hand, I think I did a good job of limiting my talking time. It was less than 30 percent, and it was usually in response to a student’s comment (meaning they drove the conversation).
