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 Clinical supervisor feedback on student performance, unit coordinator reflections.
Due to the pandemic, almost all students had disrupted and/or reduced access to clinical learning experiences. However, all students were still able to attain the required level of clinical performance in required areas of practice.
Review formal formative feedback on student performance from clinical supervisors to identify possible adjustments to the volume of experience required for future cohorts.
Feedback from Medical Imaging teaching team
Internal review and revision of the course curriculum has determined that the continuous professional development (CPD) assessment task in this unit would be better placed in a Year 4 theory unit.
Remove the CPD assessment task from this unit.
