Theories of the Mind Feedback
I would like to know what you think about the course, in planning for next year. So I've set up this website that will enable you to post anonymous comments. It's based on a thing called a guestbook, and it still has some guestbook components, ie it will ask you for your email address and website url, but please ignore those. And it will call you 'anonymous surfer', which is a little embarrassing, but bearable.
You will be able to see the comments that everyone else has made, incidentally: this is a kind of public forum. So if you keep coming back you will see if anyone has commented on your comments. It's democratic, you see.
What I want to know is, did you like the course? What did you get out of it? Did you find it useful elsewhere in the English Department (or any other Department)? Is there any way you think I should change it to make it better?
And, in particular, I would like to know your reactions to the presentations. They are a lot of work and nervous strain for everyone (me included); on the other hand, I think you can get a lot out of them, partly for that reason. What do you think? Do you think I should keep them as an assessed part of the course? Do you think I should change the format or the rules in any way? For instance, if you do a presentation as part of a job interview (and you probably will) then there will be a very strict time limit; you will simply be cut off after 15 minutes or whatever. Do you think I should institute that?
