Student evaluation of teaching and the use of mid-module review

Abstract

Being responsive to mid-module student feedback can both improve the student perception of the value placed on their feedback to staff and enhance the students' learning experience. By addressing common worries over assessment mode and assessment criteria and dealing with these worries promptly, the student can recognise that they have a voice and that staff do listen and act.

This session will look at a core maths module with 190 students which recently underwent a redesign of the module delivery. We identified four disparate groups of students and had others yet to be discovered. It was important that the students had an opportunity to voice their concerns and their support of the series of initiatives being implemented, early enough in the process that we could make changes. It also gave staff an opportunity to organise a range of extra support activities where needed.
