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 Have Your Say

Feedback

Students would like to spend more time talking about the lab workbook and going through more examples.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the Unit Coordinators will review the schedule for the On Campus Activity/Residential Schools.

Feedback from Have Your Say

Feedback

Students have asked of the possibility of two workbooks would be feasible. One based on the labs. The other based on case studies and questions from lectures.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the Unit Coordinators will review the content and look to create a feasible option with the lab workbook assessment item.

Feedback from Self Reflection

Feedback

Having two Unit Coordinators for the delivery of lectures was beneficial and allowed streamlining when updating lecture and lab content, as well as being a point of contact for students on a different campus.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the assigning of an additional lecturer to co-deliver this unit continues. This would enable students to have additional support across the term and on different campuses/study modes (mixed-mode).
