Feedback from Student feedback from have your say


Students noted that the assignment question need to be more focused and specific. The PowerPoint presentation at one stage was to be formal and this currently does not occur. Students noted a considerable increase in workload for this unit. This is mainly due to the requirement to locate considerable referenced journal articles causing their complaints. To locate these resources is a major part of the assignment and takes time.


Assignment details to be checked and realigned as necessary. Students should be made aware of suitable databases to locate resources and the reference to formal PowerPoint presentations be reviewed.
