When gathering feedback, it is important we remember to use it! Within RAPP, we frequently ask for feedback from our participants. We, as a facilitation team, then spend hours pouring over this and making appropriate updates. In some recent feedback we received, the group expressed what keeps them engaged as learners. As a program, we need to make sure we practice these things in our sessions.
Too often we are tasked with giving feedback and then....nothing. For me, many of the course evaluations I completed as a student are the first things that comes to mind when thinking of underutilized feedback. It is interesting to me that many colleges wonder why course evaluation participation is so low when the reason seems to be glaringly apparent.
Know that if RAPP asks for your feedback, it will be used!
Lessons Learned is a RAPP Blog initiative intended for folks who hold formal leadership positions in RAPP programs to share what they're learning through their process
