Getting feedback from my peers always make me nervous, but overall everything went well but I have a couple of things to consider!
I appreciated that everyone said my module was easy to use, and was organized. I try my best to make things easy for students, so they can feel at ease going into my assignments. One of my feedbackers mentioned that it was easier to use than some of the paper copies that they have seen on the desks of their colleagues. I really appreciate this because I think Sask. Youth Apprenticeship is so important and I want students to finish it in order to gain the benefits of the program.
For one of my assignments, Research a Trade, a feebacker mentioned that I should use a 4 point rubric instead of marks out of ten. They explain that “students seem to appreciate that they understand more of the criteria it takes to get a higher grade in a certain category, instead of something just being worth 10 marks, and not knowing how to get there.” I think this is a great point and I will be incorporating one in order to make my assessment stronger and more beneficial for my students.
For my next part, I attempt to finish Level two and three of SYA. One of my feebackers even provided me with a quiz for the terminology challenge. They provided study notes and a quiz. which I really appreciate (thank you!)
Overall I received some constructive criticism and some helpful resources. I plan to take this feedback and implement it into my module. I need to ensure that it is the best for students and adding in ideas from my PLC is only beneficial!
