Lessons learned

 

Work in progress.

Initial thoughts:

  • The marking scheme, while novel in its equal valuation of course components (i.e. participation, presentations, final exam), was perhaps too clinical in retrospect. The result was that some students who displayed clear differences in their overall performance ended up receiving the same final marks. Students should never be penalized according to subjective assessments of their performance, but the marking scheme in future course offerings should be capable of rewarding participants whose performances are subjectively better than their peers.
