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 Students (Have Your Say)

Feedback

Assessment Return

Recommendation

The five Fortnightly Assessable Questions (FAQ's) engage students and are relevant to developing student's writing and critical thinking skills. They also represent a heavy marking load. The unit coordinator will either reduce the number of FAQ's, their delivery in a way that reduces the marking load but also ensures students are gaining the skills they need, or a shift to class feedback for each FAQ rather than individual feedback.

Feedback from Students (Have Your Say)

Feedback

Engaging lectures

Recommendation

Students enjoyed the new lectures this year and also the lectures from previous years. The unit coordinator will record new lectures from 2021 and also include interviews and panel discussions from partner organisations and industry experts as is popular in ENVR12001 (Soil Science and Conservation).
