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 and informal feedback

Feedback

Students appreciated the opportunity to engage in an authentic work experience.

Recommendation

Continue to provide students the opportunity to experience authentic work placements.

Feedback from SUTE responses and academic team reflection

Feedback

Responses to the SUTE have been poor for the WIL units due to the timing of the placements and the SUTE survey.

Recommendation

Modify the current End of Placement Site Evaluation form that students complete to include items pertaining to the student experience of the placement and to make submission a requirement of the placement.

Feedback from Unit Coordinator and Discipline Lead reflection

Feedback

Currently there is no strict enforcement of the due date for assessments following placement resulting in submissions being received at varying intervals after placement.

Recommendation

Increase rigour around assessment submission by including additional information in the Unit Profile and have an automated email sent to students toward the end of placement to remind them of the need to submit assessments within two weeks from completion of the placement.
