11/8/2020 18:09:185555555Providing sufficient resources for students.
11/8/2020 18:40:445555555I think her greatest strength was being very approachable. She gives good feedback and reaches out when necessary, maintaining a good balance between friendliness and an educational relationship. Treats people as a person first, but holds them to their responsibility as a student.Honestly I think she has great teaching skills already, and she's very organized and punctual with resources. I think that doing more in class demonstrations may be helpful, just because with the material of this course visual guides are useful.
11/8/2020 18:47:364554555I really liked how she was able to take initiative and be quite present in the class (for it being online especially). The way the class was set up for online was definitely on the brief side of things (that's not a bad thing btw), it could've been easy for her Eryn to have blended in and not said or interact too much but she did the exact opposite. I appreciate her excitement about the class as well.It would've been nice to learn more about her, as an individual like what some of her past projects have been or something.
11/9/2020 11:30:305555555Eryn was very approachable, I felt like I could reach out to her at any point for any help, or even just to chat! One thing that I have had past TA's do that I found helpful was that the TA would give tutorials for whatever we were working on. I know had we requested it eryn would have gladly done it though :)
11/10/2020 9:42:415555555She was super nice and made really good recommendations for improvements during critiques!
11/10/2020 9:42:455555555She is very kind and helpful. Went above and beyond to make students feel less stressed and understood that we have a lot on our platesMaybe have a little more communication between her and Rachael, there was some times that they both were telling us different directions and it became confusing
11/10/2020 9:43:075555554Positivity, energy and enthusiasm with approach to helping students at any timeperhaps getting more involved in the teaching aspect to get some more experience? (maybe providing some lectures to showcase certain concepts)
11/10/2020 9:43:155554555Her positivity! I loved how open and engaging she was and she always seemed excited to start class!Overall, I think she did great!
11/10/2020 9:43:325555545Her willingness to work with students to get thorough understanding of the course material.Maybe have a little more understanding of projects ahead of time so that when students ask difficult questions she is able to navigate that without influencing us too much.
11/10/2020 9:43:345555555Being friendly, accommodating, and welcoming! Especially over zoom, it's hard to make connections with people, but Erin really did her best in that area. Even though I've never met her in person, I am 100% confident that she would give her assistance for anything related to the class if I just asked! Nothing :)
11/10/2020 9:44:194455555Really understanding the stress that sometimes comes with being a student and being understanding (the class that she led a meditation really stood out to me- I appreciated it a lot). Keep doing what you're doing!
11/10/2020 9:45:153535555Very thoughtful. Appreciated the meditation session for sure! Feedback on the publication concept was helpful.N/A
11/10/2020 9:45:455555555I loved Eryn's energy! Her brightness always made class a little more enjoyable : )If there was more room for her to explain more concepts to us that would be cool--like little demonstrations in some of the programs we're working in or 1-on-1 feedback over Zoom!
11/10/2020 9:46:064555555Her availability and approachability
11/10/2020 9:46:434534555great personality and overall did a good job at explaining what was due. loved the little comments in slack I don't have any improvements
11/10/2020 9:47:214455445would reach out to students and engage in crits not too much comes to mind
11/10/2020 9:47:215555555Made sure to always post class videos directly after class, always told us we could reach out to her during and outside of class hours, and was very approachable, friendly, and easy to get along with. Our class generally connects really well with T.A.s in person, so it was sad we didn't get to have the same face-to-face interactions with Eryn; however, Eryn did the best she could, considering all of our interactions were through Zoom. I commend her, and think she did a great job!When Eryn had to present us the information for Project 2, it was still pretty unclear what we were to do after she presented the project to us (granted, she did not write the Project, so I take it with a grain of salt). Consider working on clearer communication, and/or ensuring we understand the content after it has been presented, even if that means conveying to the teacher that we need additional clarification.
11/10/2020 9:47:264555555nice, enthusiastic, and welcoming presence sharing about what they would do for a project maybe, but really Eryn was a great TA so I don't think thats a major issue
11/10/2020 9:49:555545555Eryn was always super committed to our class and to making sure we knew what was going on.
11/10/2020 11:14:075555555She was really encouraging and optimistic and we could tell she cared about our mental health.n/a
11/11/2020 11:19:015555555Eryn is pretty much amazing in all categories. She's so personal and considerate and she gives awesome feedback. She's going to make a great teacher.I think the only thing that would help her is slightly more confidence. She's awesome and has no reason to be insecure about not knowing things/not being able to do things.
11/12/2020 13:00:064555545I appreciated how inviting and open she was, she always encouraged that if we need anything we could easily communicate with her.
11/16/2020 18:58:034555555Her ability to consider other factors of our education outside of the curriculum. I would love to hear her input more regularly.
