Collection of student’s expectations

At the beginning of a course it’s helpful to know what specific expectations the participants have on the course. Therefore, this teaching method collects and visualizes expectations on the course from all participants. Each student writes his/her expectations on a note card.The whole group discuss about the results by trying to cluster similar topics and find suitable headings. The collected expectations can be used as a basis for identifying the main topics for the students.
