Unit Location in Course
Recommendation
The students did not see the relevance of the content. I agree that the unit would be more productive and accepted in Year 1 of the course.
Action Taken
BLAR14017 is only offered to CC61 and CC62 students, so cannot be offered in Year 1 where the common Built Environment units are offered.

Feedback
The 'extra' assignment questions were quite interesting and engaging. The Flawed Building Project, ABCC, Valued Client and Ultra-High Rise questions where worthwhile and engaging questions which demonstrated our real world building industry learning. More of this please.
Recommendation
Authentic assessments are considered more engaging and result in deeper learning and knowledge retention. These resources and assessment tasks will continue to feature in this unit.
Action Taken

Feedback
I still do not know where to get my feedback. Feedback given was retrieved when requested by email however it is not attached to my grade as it is in other subjects. In saying that, once feedback retrieved it was relevant and informative.
Recommendation
Detailed feedback is an important part of the assessment process and all academic staff are reminded to provide this to students in a timely manner.
Action Taken
Nil.
