Feedback from Have Your Say Student Evaluations

Feedback

The textbook was a bit difficult to read and out of date.

Recommendation

There should be a new edition of the text prior to 2022, but UC will consider other potential texts to prescribe instead of the current text.

Feedback from Have Your Say Student Evaluations

Feedback

Further, the study guides could have had a little bit more information in them to help focus our learning.

Recommendation

The study guides need updating and this will be completed prior to the 2022 iteration of the unit.

Feedback from Have Your Say Student Evaluations

Feedback

Overall I thought the unit was perfect. The assignments had a mixture of fun and hard work with detailed research and application to learned knowledge necessary. I thought the tutorials were very enjoyable and I looked forward to attending as I knew I would definitely learn something. The answer sheets provided for the tutorial questions also enabled further learning and this was one aspect really appreciated as you get the leacturer's point of view on how the topic should be answered.

Recommendation

The mix of assessment types will be retained. The tutorial structure and answer guides will be retained.
