I'm with you - at the end of every semester I sigh and then start to ask myself what I could have done better and what I will do better next semester. I've been learning a lot from the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast. Have you heard of it? I went over to their website and found a few episodes that address some of what you mention above:
Really excellent podcast. Great interviews with profs doing interesting things in their classes.

The end of this semester is no different than every other semester I've had for the past 30 years; I'm still wondering what I could've done better. Reflection is important for the growing process and I'm always amazed at some of my colleagues who change nothing in their courses and keep delivering them the same way each semester, no matter what. Heck, I'd be bored and I certainly know my students would be too, if I didn't spice them up with current trends, technologies and pedagogies. Here's to learning something new over the holidays to add to my Spring classes... Cheers!
