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 Peer feedback Student informal feedback Self reflection

Feedback

Though there was Indigenous content on the unit, there were limited opportunities for students to fully focus on that content for their assessments.

Recommendation

Incorporate Indigenous issues as one of the options for assessment three (critical essay).

Feedback from Student formal feedback (unit evaluation) Self reflection

Feedback

Online tutorials were poorly attended even though student feedback was positive about having face-to-face (live) interactions with the tutor.

Recommendation

Give students greater encouragement to attend lectures. Send reminders to students of the importance of attending tutorials. Add additional learning resource to the Moodle site that explain the importance of attending and participating in online tutorials.

Feedback from Student formal feedback (unit evaluation) Self reflection

Feedback

Improve the structure of tutorials to allow a focus both on the lecture content and the unit textbook.

Recommendation

Prepare agendas for each tutorial that list 'key questions' for the tutorial discussion that feed both into the textbook (where relevant) and the lecture content.
