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 Course evaluations and in-class

Feedback

Many students found the weekly quizzes were very helpful and relevant to their study.

Recommendation

Quizzes will continue to be part of the weekly schedule, and updated regularly to reflect current issues in the dental workforce and practice.

Action

Quizzes continued to be part of the weekly schedule. Quizzes were updated and revised to reflect current issues in the dental workforce and practice.

Feedback from Course evaluations

Feedback

Student suggested a mid-term assessment on the learning material to give feedback on their progress and contribute to their final mark.

Recommendation

We are mindful of the current number of assessments in this course. Previously the course included an online assessment quiz in week 3, however this online multiple choice quiz has been incorporated into formative study. Students are encouraged strongly to complete the weekly formative quizzes. An in- class quiz at residential school, would provide the opportunity to give immediate feedback.

Action

An in- class OSCE multi-choice quiz was included in residential school as a formative assessment. Immediate feedback was given

Feedback from Course evaluation and in-class

Feedback

Students found the residential school to be of great benefit by gaining an overview of the dental world and a helpful insight to students who weren't sure if they were ready to make the move to Rockhampton. Students felt it was a good introduction to second and third years. Some students felt they could benefit more from increase staff and student ratio for the activities in the simulation laboratory at residential school.

Recommendation

The residential school will continue with a similar format to previous years. The difficulties with staff /student ratios for practical tasks are recognized and more help will be given.

Action

The residential school continued with a similar format to previous years. Extra help was organized to assist student in practical tasks from teaching staff and third years students. The third year students were very helpful as they have had recent experience in operating the simulation units in second year of the course.

Feedback from Course evaluations and in-class

Feedback

Students found the oral presentations were a great way to learn while listening to each other's presentations and a good way to make friends while studying by flexible delivery. Some students felt they would benefit from more directions as to the requirements of the presentations

Recommendation

Oral presentations will continue to be part of the residential school. Students will be given directions as to the target audience for the presentations and the venue for the presentation.

Action

Oral presentations continue to be part of the residential school. Students were given directions as to the target audience for the presentations and the venue for the presentation. The marking criteria for the oral presentations was revised to give clearer directions.

Assessment Tasks

1 Presentation

Assessment Title
Oral Presentation

Task Description

Communication skills are important to the Oral Health Therapist, for their role in oral health promotion, the delivery of care to patients and to be able to communicate effectively with other dental professionals. To develop these skills a number of the core units for the Bachelor of Oral Health will include presentations as part of the assessment. Initially, these will be as part of a group and short in duration. In final year you will be asked to deliver a case presentation to internal and external examiners by yourself.

During Residential School in week 6, you and a partner will be asked to present a five minute presentation. To prepare for this assessment, you will research a selected topic, and create a short concise power point presentation.You must choose from a list of topics listed on the Moodle site which relate to the roles and responsibilities of an Oral Health Therapist in a variety of dental practices.

Your presentation will describe one type of general or specialty dental practice. In your description you will explain the dental treatment provided and the patients treated in this type of practice. You will describe the different roles and interactions of the dental team members. Specifically, you will describe the role of the OHT and procedures performed by the OHT. Your talk should include the legislation applicable to this practice, the requirements for registration and education of the OHT, practice management issues (such as eligibility for CDBS, Veterans Affairs, Health Care etc), opportunities for employment and job satisfaction.

Your presentation should consider the level of knowledge of the student audience. You should take into consideration the size of the room and the audiovisual resources available. Please note, the size, colour and font used in your slides will need to be clearly visible in a large lecture theatre.

It is advised to choose your student partner early in the term. You may use the discussion forum to ask for a partner. Select a topic from the list available on the assessment task in Moodle. When you have selected a topic and partner, please advise the class via the discussion forum and email the Unit Coordinator.

Please submit a draft copy of your power point presentation at the beginning of week 6. This should include the brief outline of the content which will assist the lecturers marking your presentation.

Upload the final power point presentation on the day of the presentation.

This assessment is worth 20% of the overall mark. The minimum mark is 50% to pass and you must pass this assessment to pass the unit overall .

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.

What can you do to act with integrity?
