It’s that time of the year again. As regular readers are aware, I tend to post my favourite student evaluations here in this public space. (See here and here.) No, this is not a violation of privacy because, for one, all the evaluations are technically my property; and two, the evaluations are submitted completely anonymously. I really have no idea who wrote them… well, except for those who made reference to specific facts that clearly identify them. But that’s their choice.
To be clear, I read every evaluation given to me. I take them all very seriously, especially the ones that are critical of me. So I don’t want anyone to think that I’m being flippant about this.
