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.

Source: student evaluation
Feedback
Although most students found the ILMs helpful, some students felt that it did not encourage learning and could have been completed during tutorial session or a 3-hour lecture rather than splitting it up into many weeks.
Recommendation
It would be good for the unit coordinator to explain to students the expectations of the Individual Learning Modules and review the content.
Action Taken
The unit coordinator explained the expectations of the Individual Learning Modules and reviewed the content.
Source: student evaluation
Feedback
Some students felt that 1-hour tutorial would not be enough for their learning purposes, lecture should also be scheduled for this unit. Some students also felt that lecture is required to revise last term contents in order to implement them more in a clinical setting.
Recommendation
Lectures for this unit may not be appropriate as the academic availability is a restricting factor on timetabling for this unit. Instead lectures remained online, and it is recommended that two or more tutorial sessions be set aside for revision of previous unit contents, so the students can implement them better in a clinical setting. Advocate for group reflection in the general discussion on the unit Moodle page.
Action Taken
Zoom tutorials were organised for regular discussion and case studies to consolidate Term 1 and Term 2 content.
Source: Self-reflection
Feedback
The theory content is self-paced and could be updated with newer technology.
Recommendation
It is recommended to assess what technology is available to better deliver the self-paced content.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Self-reflection
Feedback
This is a practical unit that had been delayed due to COVID-19. The unit did not commence until Week 9 of Term 2, and continued until 18 December 2020. For this reason much of the content, and all of the assessment occurred after the Term 2 evaluations closed.
Recommendation
There are no recommendations.
Action Taken
Nil.
