You’re always looking for ways to break up your lectures and design activities to help students succeed. That’s what makes you an amazing educator. It shows you care. And part of caring is checking in with your students and getting their feedback so you know what’s working and what isn’t from their perspective.

And that’s what this episode is all about.

Luke takes us inside his mixed methods approach to student feedback. He talks about the importance of having the right mindset when reviewing student feedback. He also shares what questions to ask your students and how to establish trust with your students so they feel they can share their honest feedback.
