“If this course was discontinued, it would be no great loss to the animal science department”

Got feedback from last semester’s 4th year class last week: about 50 of the 100-strong group gave online feedback, which is pretty unprecedented.  Most of the class liked it, and a healthy chunk of them really REALLY liked it (for which thank you, if you’re reading this!). Some useful critical feedback too, especially on my slides-as-handout approach (easy for me, but sometimes a pain for them). However, a couple of the comments had me reeling. The one in the subject line was one; another claimed I’d “belittled” her. They really hurt at first, but honestly, after a lot of thought and self-reflection, I’m just going to ignore them. Great additions to my anti-CV though: will spice it up nicely.
