  • Melanie Rodgers commented on the article "How to Survive Critique: A Guide to Giving and Receiving Feedback"

    Thanks for this article. You hit the nail on the head, as far as, students being hesitant to be negative, student personality differences, the hamburger approach and the job of the instructor. I recently received a "I did what she told me to and then she didn't like it" comment on a student evaluation... and I was very frustrated that this gal's grasp of what we were doing was so literal! I am going to adress this part of my role and see if I can make it clearer to the gang!
