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 student feedback, instructor reflections

Feedback

The study guide contains some content that is outdated. References to more recent publications are needed. There is also considerable duplication of content in the study guide and with recorded lectures.

Recommendation

Edit study guide to complement rather than duplicate lecture content and update references to research findings and government publications.

Feedback from student feedback

Feedback

Some lectures have poor sound quality. Video clips within recorded lectures are difficult to see and hear. Some lecture videos have slides that do not match the posted set. Many lecture videos are long (over 30 minutes).

Recommendation

Replace lecture videos with poor sound/visual quality and ensure matching of posted slides with recordings. Split longer lecture videos into smaller segments.

Feedback from student feedback

Feedback

Study of the unit provides clear connections between the theory topics and practice as a health professional and also provides insights to healthcare beyond the student's own profession.

Recommendation

Continue to emphasise the connections to real world clinical practice.
