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 Unit Evaluation Survey

Feedback

Students found the ability to progress in a single design project throughout the semester very enjoyable and engaging.

Recommendation

We continue to develop assessment items around the various stages of a single design project.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation Survey

Feedback

Comments were made about the site for the design project being small and creating constraints for students to design or ending up with final designs that are more or less similar to one another.

Recommendation

We review the options of either offering students freedom to choose their own building site or providing a larger site for the project.
