How to Identify and Fix a Bad Class

Listen to Podcast Episode No. 13  [display_podcast]


What can a professor do in this situation?
DON’T GIVE UP - a course can be turned around.
What can happen when these symptoms occur?
- Students can complain to the professor
- Or, more commonly, they go over their head
- Parents complain to the administration
- Students become disruptive in class

All of this, unfortunately results in, “Students are not learning”

Some of these FEELINGS might be experienced:
For the students
Frustrated /  angry  /  overwhelmed /  inadequate / apathetic / passive-aggressive

For the professor
Frustration / worry / concern / helpless / defensive

For the administration
Frustrated / Concerned / wary / increased workload - aka - fire fighting

DON’T GIVE UP - a course can be turned around.

When you address the problem is important.
- Don’t assume that you know what the problem is.
- Conduct an anonymous - in-class survey.
