What would you improve for your education at UK?

To improve my education here at UK, one thing I would improve is the quality of the teaching. Some teachers just stand up at the front of the class rambling on and on, not caring if the students are paying attention, and not bothering to take attendance to see if all students are there. These classes should be more interactive. Students should be asked to participate more, as it will help with understanding the topic. Another thing I would change to improve my education is the length of the classes. So many people complain that 50 minute classes are too long, but I completely disagree. I feel that 50 minutes 3 times a week is no where near enough time for us to learn all the material they expect us to. If the classes were longer, by 30 minutes at the least, this would allow us to have the time to actually learn the topic, instead of just memorizing facts long enough to pass the test, then never thinking about them again.

  1. Great points Heather. I have you down 1 blog this let set.

    I think the 50-minute class is also too short. It’s hard to get stuff reviewed then to move on in that short period. This is one reason why some folks go right into lecture mode. Perhaps more group work could be a solution, or project workshop time?

    As for your final project, I’ll be expecting you to update your blog settings, as well as to add hyperlinks to sources, and building a digital assignment, complete with media embedded and sources cited. You’ll be able to use all the stuff you wrote previously for the course, but you will also need to edit things to fit. Think about which subjects you’ve written for the course intersect, and how you could somehow order them together or near one another. Podcast or video projects are also options. If that interests you still, let me know and I can get you some help with editing and software stuff.

    5 out of 5 for last set of blogs.
