The Feedback Loop

Recently our own Cory Zimmermann spoke at UW-Whitewater, and while it’s not the first time he’s been a guest in the classroom, it was really interesting to see the results of this speaking engagement.

When I say “see the results” I’m talking about the mentions of it I found online. After the class, Cory came back to the office, and was busy getting caught up, but mentioned that it went well. The cool thing about it was that I found a number of blog posts that also mentioned his visit, from the student point of view.

In the olden days (which can be 5 years, 10 years, or more, depending on how old you are) you’d speak to a class, and maybe get some feedback from the teacher afterwards, but that was about it. Seeing these posts show up days later is kind of cool. I’ve heard from our intern Jessica that Ann Knabe, the teacher for the class, is pretty inspiring herself, and one of the reasons these students shared their thoughts and opinions online.

If you’ve ever given a presentation, you know how valuable feedback can be… Thanks for sharing Sam, Amanda, and Rachel!
