A Change Will Do Me Good

Posted by Seeking Solace |

Like my fellow instructors, I am preparing my course material for the next semester I use this time to conduct a course autopsy of the classes that I taught the prior semester. What worked? What did not work? What could I do differently?

I am working on my Survey of Law course. I have taught this course for over two years. I am thinking about changing the research component. I think the students are getting wise to the type of assignment I give. I am afraid of receiving “recycled papers’. Plus, I am just tired of the assignment. I am not sure what I will do to replace this assignment. Maybe something more hands on. Something with a problem solving element.

Any thoughts out there?

I'm seeking something similar for my Comp II courses. Good luck!

I'm of the mind that you have to change up assignments every semester, because students are far more wise to your ways than you probably think.

And if you are tired of reading the product of this assignment, you should change it. You can't be fair to the students.
