10 ways to encourage students to take responsibility

I was tweeted Ed Ustanges's posterous post on the 10 ways to encourage students to take responsibility. I have listed his top ten, for more details see Ed's post. Great work Ed! I think I will ask my intern to evaluate me on Ed's list. I hope I pass.

1. Don’t make all the decisions

2. Don’t play guess what’s in my head

3. Talk less

4. Model behaviors and attitudes that promote learning.

5. Ask for feedback

6. Test less

7. Encourage goal setting and reflection.

8. Don’t over plan.

9. Focus on learning, not work.

10. Organise student led conferences


  1. When applicants begin researching their target schools in more depth, we would like to

    highlight a valuable research tool: school-hosted blogs. The last few years have seen a

    significant increase in the number of MBA student blogs hosted by schools’ admissions offices,

    as well as in admissions offices’ use of blogs to keep applicants informed of deadlines,

    admissions policies and events.Visit this site to learn more...

  2. Do I get to weigh in on this evaluation?

    Number 3, talk less, but what about regaling that doesn't count does it?
