How do you know what students are learning in class from day to day?This poster describes part 1 of a process designed to effectively communicate what students felt they had learned during a classroom session. I did this to try and go beyond traditional methods of evaluation and really focus on what they felt they had learned. So, I asked students in my class to reflect on what we had done that morning with reference to our intended learning outcomes and record their thoughts on bespoke evaluation cards. The data generated by these were converted to a word cloud using NVivo that enabled the “big ideas” to be seen. The word cloud was tweeted to the students using a unique hashtag, (#pgcne16 and #pgcne16s2).
