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 Student feedback

Feedback

Using Teams is difficult to navigate especially on devices other than a laptop. I was unable to access a lot of the material via my tablet and had to use a friend's laptop to access the material, zoom recordings and assignment information.

Recommendation

MS Teams makes the lecturer more approachable so we will still keep using MS Teams and clarify how to use MS Teams at the beginning of the term.

Feedback from Student feedback

Feedback

The assessment task was very versatile in allowing the students to explore topics that they are interested in.

Recommendation

We will keep using versatile assessment tasks that allow students to learn how to solve practical problems.
