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 Student feedback. New edition of PMBOK.

Feedback

Unit content: The current content is relevant and useful. It is at an appropriate level for the student cohort. However, there is now a new edition of PMBOK that needs to be incorporated into the unit.

Recommendation

Where relevant, update the materials to reflect the new edition of PMBOK.

Feedback from Student evaluations, feedback from the students and the teaching team.

Feedback

Assessment items: Positive feedback was received about assessment items. Students enjoyed researching and learning more about a topic of their choice in project management (assessment item 3). They also appreciated the practical aspects of the assessment items where they were able to apply the theory they were learning in class.

Recommendation

Continue with the same assessment regime.

Feedback from Student evaluations, feedback from the students and the teaching team.

Feedback

Tutorial classes: Due to COVID-19 constraints and the reduced time now available for the tutorial/workshop classes, there is less time to complete all the exercises and Microsoft Practicals in the class. There was also much less time for case studies that illustrate the theory and provide an excellent learning experience. Students indicated they would like longer tutorial classes to have more time for practical work and case study discussions. Although offshore students appreciate the opportunity to have zoom tutorial classes, feedback indicated that students would still prefer face-to-face classes.

Recommendation

The tutorial/workshop activities will be redesigned to incorporate the new edition of PMBOK and to accommodate within the allocated tutorial time.
