When giving feedbacks to students, some teachers would like to talk to their students in person, while some teachers would give written comments to students. Which do you prefer and why?
① Professors and students will have interaction when they exchanging ideas without concealment face to face, which can leave lasting impression on students.
② Face-to-face talk may contain more emotion cuz students can feel sincere and other stuff by staring at professor, which can avoid misunderstanding.
①This method may contain more emotion cuz professor can write down more details and point out student’s shortcomings indirectly, which leaves lasting impression on students.
② Students can maintain these real materials for a long time.
Task2是关于老师应该口头反馈还是书面反馈学生的情况。口头的好处是直接不会产生歧义，并且能当场看到学生的反应。(give direct feedback to students and avoid ambiguity. Also can observe students reaction and know their thoughts in communication)书面的好处是能够短时间内对许多同学进行反馈，效率高而且反馈的内容有记录方便之后跟进。(efficient because teacher can write the feedback about a lot of students in a short period of time. Also the written work can be traced later and helps to keep a complete record of the students performance.)
I would say it is better to provide face to face feedbackto students. First off, when talking face to face, students can see professor’sbody language and facial expression,which are very important to convey emotions. Students can understand theirprofessors’ comments more clearly and intuitively. However, there is noemotional elements if professors give written comments. Students might not evenread the professors’ comments in a timely manner. Thus, they will have no clue howwell they did on the project.
I think it really depends on how many students the teacher is in charge of. I mean, if a teacher only has to give feedbacks to a few students, then face-to-face communication is a better approach because this gives each student individual attention and support, students can raise questions and get answers immediately. However, when a teacher has a large number of students, talking to them one by one would make the job impossible to finish, I think it’s ok to send feedback emails to students, they also help students know where they need to improve.
