4 Review, modify, repeat!
Summarising what you have learned this week, here is a guide to aid your thought processes as you work on your own evaluations of online teaching:
- Using your responses to Activity 2 earlier this week, identify exactly which aspect(s) of your online teaching you want to evaluate.
- Identify from where or whom you will obtain the information you need.
- If using analytics, what kinds of data are particularly relevant to your objectives? How can you get hold of these, or make sure they are being recorded? How will you use the data to draw conclusions?
- If using feedback, which method(s) will you use? Synchronous or asynchronous forums dedicated to feedback? Dedicated questionnaires? Peer observation?
- If using a questionnaire, use your responses from Activity 2 earlier this week to draft some questions you might wish to use.
- Using your responses from Activity 1 earlier this week, identify any other relevant people with whom you might wish to work to create a community around your evaluation activity.
- As well as analysing the feedback received regarding your online teaching, review the value of the data you have obtained. Would any modifications to the evaluation process provide more valuable data?
