Soliciting mid-semester student feedback encourages a more responsible attitude by the students as they reflect upon the course. Making use of a third party facilitator to obtain this feedback results in constructive suggestions by the students. Implementation of some of these suggestions, will often result in an improved learning environment. A junior-level fluid mechanics course was modified over a two-year period. These modifications together with the results of soliciting mid-semester feedback are described here.
