Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from SUTE


More introductory learning material.


While there is existing introductory learning material on the definition of agricultural extension, additional learning material should be created, in particular an introductory video, a formative "learning checkpoint" quiz and slides to accompany the week 1 pre-reading on agricultural extension.

Feedback from Unit coordinator reflections


A learning checkpoint in Module 1


Given some students struggled with the introductory information on agricultural extension in Module 1 (weeks 1 and 2), the unit should include a formative assessment in the form of a "learning checkpoint" or test, ensuring students are familiar with agricultural extension.

Feedback from SUTE Feedback


Suitable assessment


Review the assessment to ensure that there is clear alignment between the assessments and the learning material.

Feedback from Unit Coordinator Feedback


The asynchronous nature of learning material in this unit lends itself well to schedules of the many students who are working full- or part-time jobs at this stage of their studies. However, it also presents challenges for engagement, which was very low this term.


Implement occasional extended drop in sessions for students to engage live with the unit coordinator outside of business hours.
