Overall, I'm quite pleased with the evaluations, as they have shown that most people like the way I'm doing things. There are areas to improve though, and three things are apparent from the qualitative comments:

  1. He asks too much of us;
  2. He tries to put too much into a lecture and so seems scattered;
  3. He knows his stuff and is enthusiastic but tends to wander off the point sometimes.

So next semester, I'm going to focus on being focused in lectures, more structured in my objectives for the class in particular and the module in general, and demand less of the student in terms of continual assessment.

Feedback is great. Not fun, but good for you in the long run.
