Two Professors Share Their Thoughts and Feelings with Their Students
AbstractABSTRACTAbstract: Lecture dominates the medium that is used to communicate facts and concepts to college students. Often these facts and concepts are either misunderstood or take on meanings not intended by the lecturer. Unfortunately, there are very few avenues that students can pursue to clarify misconceptions other than infrequent question-asking or a visit during office hours. Likewise, professor feedback is delayed until end-of-the-year student evaluations that does not remediate faulty logic and serves little purpose in reclaiming clarity of thought and negotiation of meaning of the curriculum. This paper describes how electronic dialogues can illuminate the degree of student understanding with course content.
