Survey your students about their learning

Want to engage your students like never before and get them excited about your class? Try asking for their opinions about how your class is conducted and about how they learn.

The easiest way to get some quick, honest results is with an online survey. Try a tool like SurveyMonkey. With SurveyMonkey, you can have a 10-question survey, with multiple options, set up in 30 minutes or less.

Remember, though, if you are going to ask students what they want and how they want to learn, you have to be ready to make changes. It might be a bit scary, but it should also be exciting.

I'm surveying my students tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.
