Meetings are good?

We had our mid-semester reviews today. These are when the staff and students get together and discuss how the course is going. All the staff responsible for the teaching drop by and find out how things are going. We've had these for a while, the idea is that we find out if anything is wrong when we are still in a position to do something about it.

Nobody complained about my jokes, which is good. Perhaps they've not figured out that they are jokes - and are busy revising them in case they turn up in an exam. Ho hum. Generally speaking things are fine, but some bits of one module have some of the students a bit bamboozled. No problem, a bit of arranging and we will have extra tutorials rolling for the group on Friday.

It is nice when something useful comes out of a meeting. One of the many reasons I like working at Hull.
