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 'Have Your Say' evaluations, Moodle and online tutorials.

Feedback

Students would like more feedback on their Oral Presentations to understand where they need to improve for future oral presentations in Oral Health.

Recommendation

It is recommended that Oral Presentations return to face to face delivery in 2021 as opposed to on-line. In this format, students will be given more time to receive feedback. Face to face delivery allows a greater opportunity for students to engage in the discussions and learn from other students in their cohort.
