It is time to start going back in time and writing down mine and students’ impressions about 2012 learning/teaching experiences and do the best I can to recall them through notes, pictures and students’ feedback. That doesn’t seem to make sense to do that now, especially that without recordings of the class, much be about only impressions, rather than working with facts. However I assume that by doing that I have something to look forward to in terms of small changes and working alongside students to pin down what really needs to change on a daily basis. But before I do so, I’d like to share some blogposts that cover the subject of students feedback and other teachers’ experiences/reflections. Wonderful posts!
