Surveys of the student experience
The Quality and Analytics Group administers surveys of the student experience at three levels:
- The degree or course level;
- The unit of study level (USS); and
- The individual teacher level (FFT).
Please contact the QA Group Surveys team if you have any queries about student experience surveys.
Evaluation of teaching and learning
One of the ways we evaluate teaching and learning at Sydney is via surveys of the student experience. In addition to gathering and using student evaluation data, peer evaluation and self evaluation are also important practices for university teachers. Resources to support peer and self evaluation of your teaching can be found in:
- The Education Portfolio’s Teaching Insights;
- The University’s promotions guidelines; and
- The Education Portfolio’s academic promotions resources.
Curriculum review and course evaluation
The Education Portfolio provides the University with consultative support in curriculum reviews and course evaluations (including preparation for accreditation). Student experience survey results form one possible source of information in curriculum evaluation.
Evaluation of educational innovation
The Education Portfolio provides support for Educational Innovation Grant holders and provides connections to further support by other groups and networks e.g. ICT, eLearning, faculty-based innovation mentors, etc. This is primarily via a series of evaluation and support workshops run throughout the grant period, which are scheduled to support preparation of the progress report and final report.
