Bad Feminist: Book Discussion Series

Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist - March 2018 Library Book Discussion, sponsored by ISU Library's Committee on Diversity & Inclusion

Week 6: Reflection Meeting

Reflection & Assessment

 

For some closure to our series, please do read the final two essays:

Bad Feminist Take One

Bad Feminist Take Two

We'll also spend this meeting with general discussion on the following topics:  

  • What did we learn, individually and as a group?
  • How do we go forward with what we've learned?
  • What can we apply at work, in our relationships with colleagues, and in our personal lives?

We will also assess the book discussion series.

Assessment Questions

After completion of the series, the following assessment questions were sent to all participants in the format of an anonymous survey.  Likert-style questions utilized a 4-item "forced choice" scale, meaning an even number of item choices with no hypothetical neutral middle ground. Survey results will be used to help guide development of future DEI book discussion series programs.

1. What did you hope to learn through participating in the Bad Feminist Book Discussion series?

2. How well did the discussion series meet your learning expectations?

3. This series included four weekly meeting discussions. How many of the discussion meetings did you attend?
