As educators, we are often hoping to improve our teaching practice after each lesson. We listen to what our students tell us, how they do in assessments and how engaged they are. But usually, our feedback is solely based on them. Our supervisors or administrators will come into our classrooms during visits and provide us with feedback, but this is definitely not a consistent teaching practice.
We are usually the hardest critics of our own practices; but, when it comes to reflecting on a lesson or an activity we applied, it is difficult to remember exactly how it went. So many other factors come in our minds such as student behavior, when the bell rang, who wasn’t in their seat, that we are rarely able to remember what we, as the instructors did.
