Your Voice Shapes Our University: Give effective feedback
Your time here at university is just that – yours. As we approach the end of the year, we’re asking for your feedback, to help shape the teaching and learning experience for the remainder of your course and for our future students, too.
Completing your Module Check In survey can have a direct impact on the way in which your module is taught – we want to understand the areas of the module that you feel are going well, but also where we need to improve and your suggestions as to how. The survey will come as close to the mid-point of your module as possible, so that your feedback can make a real difference to your learning experience.
Once the survey has closed, you will receive a Student Feedback Report with a summary of the results and a response from your Module Leader. The more people that complete the survey, the better Module Leaders can tailor their teaching and delivery to focus on the aspects that they know their students enjoy. By sharing your views, you will help to elevate the voices of the other people on your module too.
The views and opinions you share through Module Check In will be anonymous and it should only take a few minutes to complete. To make your feedback as effective as possible, follow these simple steps:
- Be clear and specific: Think about activities and content of the module – assessment tasks, lectures, seminars. Provide examples of things you enjoyed and constructive suggestions for improvement. The more specific your examples the more actionable the outcomes will be.
- Focus on module content and substance: Comments about clothing, hairstyle, etc., are unhelpful.
- Be respectful: Your evaluation is a professional communication. Derogatory or offensive language is inappropriate and unhelpful.
- Give anonymous feedback: take care not to identify yourselves or others.
