The course went extremely well.  We used multiple learning modalities and students responded extremely well, particularly for being high school students. Since it is a class for high school students, coming to campus cuts into their high school time. This means I had to use our class time to come to the campus.  Any other time they are in class. Overall, the students are leaving the course with a stronger understanding of course materials and their responsibility for their own learning.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 30

The students have the ability to perform basic calculations involving real numbers. The students were a little bit weak in translating words and phrases to mathematical expressions. The students were exceptional their ability to complete dimensional analysis. Overall, students showed the ability to recognize patterns and think abstractly about mathematical concepts.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 120

Overall, the course was average.  Students were a bit weak in radical equations and ratioinal equations. They are also a little bit weak in understanding the concepts of functions. They met my standards of basic computational skills involviing linear and quadratic equations and general concepts involving exponential and logarithmic functions.

Mathematics and Statistics STAT 300

Out of three sections of this course, there is a range of performance, most notably in the fall semester with a large number of incoming freshmen who struggle college-level rigor and self-evaluation of understanding. The Probability is the most difficult in general and helping the students with the overall concept map to compare and contrast is extremely helpful at the end of the unit. These current students embrace technology eagerly, regardless of the specific technology package.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 144

Overall, the fall semester 8-week condensed MATH 144 has high success after the initial week of acclimation to the double pace of the course.  Four two-week modules works well because it's enough time to engage the students in the topic and evaluate them, but recognizes that the course is really exposure to new concepts rather than deep mastery.

Biology BIOL 352

Most students started with little science and math background, so many basic biological and ecological concepts were challenging to understand and took a significant amount of time. Most students were able to meet expectations, some exceeded expectations, while a few were below expectations. All students with consistent attendance and participation met or exceeded expectations.

None

Kinesiology and Athletics SPORT 366

Overall, the class does its job as far as getting the team into shape, in the workout room, with cardio training and with the general skills of softball. Team was enthusiastic and excited and prepared to come back ready for spring.

Kinesiology and Athletics FITNS 306

The majority of the class is prepared to do the work of the class and most of the students attend regularly. Students give positive feedback about the class and have plans to continue working on the principles of the class.  The majority of the students are eager to learn, try to work out on their own away from class, and give excellent and effort and attitude during the class.

Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate MKT 310

Overall, students definitely reinforce the elements of selling. We do this in a variety of ways including visual aids, videos, literature, etc. Some of it may seem repetitive, but they need this in order to take in the elements of this skill.  Their critical thinking and analysis of problems is ok, but I build this into every single assignment so they have to really think about the elements of each of the aspects part of selling. Basically, students get a good grasp of all of the elements of seliing and sales, although I don't have the expectation that they will develop a full skill set in each area.

Foreign Languages VIET 411

Overall, the students respond well to the course materials. It has been a cumulative experience, since they were able to use materials begun in 401 and 402.  Students definitely more than adequate job in accomplishing the tasks required in the course and in meeting the assessments.

The class went very well.  The students exceeded my expectations in most of the categories I measure.  I attribute the class exceeding my expectations to the implementation of LearnSmart from McGraw-Hill (the textbook publisher I use).  The tool tests students' comprehension of the course content in each of the textbook chapters.  The tool uses adaptive software and focuses the content on topics where students most struggle based on how they answer the questions that are presented.

History HIST 365

This is the first time I am teaching this class, so it isn't idea yet. The historical causation is the number one focus for me.  My goal is for students to be able to see this and I present a variety of materials and modes so that they can do this successfully.  Overall, the students are grasping the material and succeeding in the class.

12/02/2016 view
History HIST 314

I did a bit of experimenting this semester. I used some video clips of documentaries and students did more analytical work than they'd done previously. Overall, I think students achieved success.  For me what it is important is historical causation and most of the students understood this concept.  Most students have grasped the connection between events and the variety of areas involved--geography, politics,etc.  We have focused on the "why" as much as anything else and students have grasped this. Doing this experimenting did limit the lecture time, so I will now readjust.

Overall we need to explore more ways to get student engagement in the material. They are definitely gleaning the information, but they are not thinking about it deeply. This is a team-taught course and our lectures tend to be re-hashes of what they have read in the textbook.  This is one of the only ways to get them to consider the material in order to think critically about the material we cover. Quizzes at the beginning of class have now been moved to the end of class, but by then the information is more synthesized. We get a wide variety of students so making sure that the majority of them get the major concepts is continuing challenge.

In this class, the technology changes so rapidly that I've had to change a lot of assignments to meet industry changes and changes in software. Even then, I don't feel I've covered all I need to. I want to re-evaluate the topics, the individual skills that I'm teaching, and the order or presentation of topics. I spend a lot of time thinking about what is currently important to cover in the course and whether each element is integral to the assignments and the course. It's a moving target and never quite feel I've succeeded with.

This is the first time I've taught this course so I've learned a lot about translating the topic to students. What makes sense to me doesn't necessarily make sense to the students. We use groups in this class, and I need to do more research into group formation and group maintenance. They are doing creative work and problem-solving with the tools and techniques they've learned this semester, which is encouraging. The way the class has been set up, there has been a great deal of collaboration, which is good. They are also very enthusiastic about the subject matter.

I have taught this course for six years and this is the first time that all of the pieces have come together. For example, I made the pin hole assignment a lab assignment instead of a portfolio assignment, which meant that I was able to see it earlier in the semester and this gave them more help and provided me with a better sense of where they were in the class.  I have also rearranged my assignments to create a better flow in the course and that allows me to scaffold things better. I have also broken down the research components in the course so that they are not all due at the same time. Overall students are progressing well, grasping the concepts, having success and definitely experiencing productive failure. They have enough to get going, but they learn as they progress.

Kinesiology and Athletics DANCE 410

Students are engaging actively in this class, grasping the skills and movements required in Dance Composition and Production. They are working together cooperatively and they are developing an understanding and appreciation of dance composition.

Theatre Arts TA 420

Overall the class gives a broad perspective and introduction into theater as it pertains to stagecraft, props, scenic painting, set construction, etc. By the end of this class, students have a basic understanding of these elements and are able to move forward to the next phase of courses and/or jobs. This is essentially an introduction to these elements, so mastery is limited in that way, but they can continue to more complex courses.
