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

Feedback

Students loved the way the unit was structured where time was allocated at the end of the term for revision. Therefore, students felt more prepared for their assessments.

Recommendation

It is recommended that students continue to have one or two sessions to review all the rheumatological conditions covered in this unit. This will give them more confidence in the assessment, which are open book exams

Feedback from Lecturer self reflection

Feedback

There were too many rheumatological conditions and some conditions overlapped with other units such as High Risk Foot and Chronic Wound Care (PODI14010)

Recommendation

It is recommended to discuss with the unit co-ordinator of PODI14010 regarding the content covered in these two units in order to streamline and reduce overlap in content.
