Received a feedback from a student who took my Introduce to IS course in Spring 2018:
Given that this course is offered to pre-major freshmen/sophomores, I seldom get to hear from them after the course. But it always feels great when students come back to tell you that they could apply what they learnt in their work subsequently. For me, this course outcome is more meaningful than students’ grades or satisfaction. Yet, as I told the student above, it is more than just my teaching or the course content. You need students with the right attitude and who want to be inspired. We don’t often get such students, but when we have them in our classroom, it makes a world of difference to our teaching and the learning environment.
Nonetheless, I still take whatever credit that is given to me for the student’s outstanding performance at the bank 🙂
