(309c) Course Design Vs. Student Experience: To What Extent Do We Agree on What Happens in Class?
We also noticed an intriguing discrepancy in the data; when students were asked to describe their courses, students in the same course didnât agree on the presence of these elements. Some students described the course as including real problems, while others in the same course did not, even though the instructorâs intent was to include real problems in the course. We have redesigned our post-course survey to more closely examine this discrepancy and explore its roots and implications.Â Students and faculty in nine courses in the 2016-17 academic year were asked about their course experiences relating to the seven factors listed above. This presentation describes work-in-progress, as the survey is anticipated to continue into the 2017-18 academic year.
