My most favorite thing about my job is when I have the opportunity to facilitate a great discussion. I got the chance to do this, World Cafe style recently with colleague Jan Johnson and assisted by our intrepid co-op student Victor Ng. We posed 2 questions to learners and teachers on separate occasions:
- what are the qualities of a really great learning (or teaching) experience you’ve had lately?
- what are the necessary ingredients to make a great learning experience from your perspective?
Here are some of the results in graphic form (thanks to Victor and Wordle). Teachers on the left – learners on the right.
Detailed results were assembled on our wiki
And talked about (yes, this was my least favorite part) during the Learning Conference last week – here’s the video:
If you have any responses to those questions – I’d love to hear them.
