Lisa Schneier (2001) describes her role as “helping a group to develop a history of ideas”. The way that Professor Duckworth’s T440 course contains ideas which continually spiral back on each other through the classes, section meetings, readings and fieldworks is a model of how curriculum should operate. Our Teaching Fellow used our journals as sources to complete the feedback loop, often throwing a question out in section that had come from someone’s journaling. This has made me very aware of the powerful nature of feedback provided in response to student journaling. I wonder how the average teacher could provide sufficient feedback to 150 students to make it worthwhile? Could students provide peer to peer feedback? Could it be done online? Has anyone experimented in this regard?
