History Department Response to Student Feedback
HSTY 2663 – Natives & Newcomers in an Atlantic World (2006)
Unit Coordinator: Dr Michael McDonnell
This was the second time I taught this unit of study at the University of Sydney. After taking on board some of the comments from the previous year, I am pleased to report that the overall satisfaction rate for the unit of study, wherein students agreed or strongly agreed with the statement that they were satisfied with the quality of the unit of study, was 95.2% with only one person who disagreed, and only one person neutral on the subject. This is up slightly from a satisfaction rate of 93% the previous year, and is I think a reflection of the changes we made in the unit of study. Most students were very happy with the course and their comments reflected this. Students seemed to particularly enjoy being able to choose their focus of study for the essay and tutorial papers.
For more details about the course, and the kind of feedback we have received, please see the response to student feedback from 2004
