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 Unit Evaluation

Feedback

Students appreciated residential school focusing entirely on practical skills. In previous years there had also been a theory test as well as hands-on activities at the residential school.

Recommendation

Continue to hold on-line theory assessments separate to residential school.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation

Feedback

Some students did not feel that they used a significant portion of the prescribed text for this unit. The text is also used in upper level units but students were not necessarily aware of that.

Recommendation

Investigate the feasibility of replacing the required text with other online resources, taking into account the use of the text in other units.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Many students found the tutorials informative, including those who used the recordings rather than participating in live sessions. Some commented that the recordings included only the structured tutorial content, not questions that students asked at the end of the session.

Recommendation

Continue to record online tutorials, ensuring that the recordings capture both the formal and informal segments of the sessions.
