Mid-Semester Evaluation of NEUR201 I am very interested in getting some feedback from you at this point in the semester, so I have a better sense of your “relationship” with the course and our class community thus far. I will read these over the break and will endeavor to address any concerns you might have. So, please take a few moments to provide confidential and anonymous feedback on the following: 1. Do you feel that your ability to read and understand primary literature papers has improved so far this semester? If not, are there things I might do differently to help with this goal? 2. Do you feel you are learning to take a question of interest and develop a hypothesis that you might be then able to test? We are developing this skill in class through considering hypotheses that others have tested, and in lab by designing your own experiments. If you feel you are not learning this skill, are there things I might do differently to help you achieve this course goal? 3. A course goal is to become well-versed in the language of neuroscience, to learn to write and speak on the discipline. Do you feel you are beginning to achieve this goal? If not, are there things I might do differently to help you achieve this goal? 4. Do you feel you are learning some important concepts and information about neuroscience and behavior from multiple different levels of analysis? Do you feel you are beginning to be able to integrate concepts across topics? 5. Do you feel that you are on your way towards achieving a solid foundation in the experimental approaches to a variety of research questions in neuroscience and behavior? If not, are there things I might do differently to help you work towards this course goal? 6. Do you feel like we are developing a supportive and engaging class community/community of majors? If not, are there ideas you have about how we might better achieve a good classroom environment?
