Feedback from Unit Evaluation Survey

Feedback

Students found the unit fun to complete with the content and assignments that were relevant and engaging. Among the best aspect of the unit, reference was made to the assignments. The flexibility allowed in the choice of material to study according to the students' interest; something that made it easier and more enjoyable for students to complete the assignments.

We continue to include assessment tasks that allow students to individualise their learning and become more engaged in the learning process.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation Survey

Feedback

One suggestion made was to include more resources that include in-depth details to gain a broader understanding of some of the building materials in addition to relying on textbook chapters.

Recommendation

Additional readings will be added to the weekly topics to include more in-depth and diverse details around the selected building materials.
