Reply To: Timing!! (tick tock tick tock)

Zoe Cohen

Great suggestions! I did ask my students about how long I was allowing for student run discussions…and they tended to say I gave too much time…so I did try to shorten that!
I have actually ever timed myself…I should do that to get a better understanding…I think partly that my lectures don’t have “question” time built in…partly because it really depends on the students…I’ve had years where nobody talks, nobody asks questions etc…and then years such as this one…where they ask so many questions (and so many good questions!!)…
So maybe my best course of action is to “go with the flow”…and in years like this one, cut some of the not-really-needed material out to account for the questions…
