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 Verbatim student feedback in the SUTE Term Report

Feedback

"I really enjoyed this unit. Malcolm is a great lecturer, the content was interesting and the readings were insightful and helpful."

Recommendation

The Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Sustainability themes have been embraced in the renewal of this unit within the CQURenew project. The preparation of customised content in the synopses captures the themes in a way that current textbooks do not. Readings and discussions in workshops bring these perspectives to life. The recommendation is to continue this approach.

Feedback from Verbatim student feedback in the SUTE Term Report

Feedback

"The overall content covered within the unit was interesting and engaging."

Recommendation

Respect for each person's experience and insights is the foundation for engaged discussion and enriched learning. The recommendation is to continue this approach.

Feedback from Verbatim student feedback in the SUTE Term Report

Feedback

"Workshops and the synopsis (were good aspects of the unit)"

Recommendation

Success relies on the workshop dynamic so there will be some variability week-to-week, but hopefully one that continues to improve through the term. Continue this approach for subsequent Terms.

Feedback from Verbatim student feedback in the SUTE Term Report

Feedback

"There needs to be a better explanation of the requirements for the assessment tasks as it can be hard to decipher what needs to be done. It would also be beneficial if there were examples of previous submissions to give students an idea of what direction they need to go in."

Recommendation

The feedback comment is respectfully considered as follows. Moodle design seeks to make resources easy to access. Sometimes the resources provided, such as recorded assessment briefings and example reports are not obvious at first glance. Participation in workshops and/or viewing the recordings uploaded to Moodle provides additional pointers as to where resources are located. Academic staff continue to be contactable if there are questions. Therefore, it is recommended that assessment task requirements be communicated through multiple modes, including the unit profile, workshops, forum, the assessment tab in Moodle, and assessment briefings.
