‘Effectively Cleaning our Data and Closing the Feedback Loop’
Sarah Williamson, (Assistant Director of the Centre for Academic Practice) and Andria Iacovou (Technology Enhanced Learning Support Officer), University of Loughborough
At Loughborough we use a network of Feedback Administrators across the University who review, import and validate our data for Module Feedback, using the system’s Data Integrity Gateway (DIG). We will discuss why the DIG is needed at Loughborough, how we got everyone on board and share the successes and lessons learnt from the first year of implementation. We will also discuss how we have developed and implemented a ‘Closing the Feedback Loop’ process, requiring our Module Leaders to respond to students letting them know what actions they may take as a result of the feedback.
11:30 – 12:00
‘Closing the loop; student feedback as part of the module review process’
Roni Roberts, Head of Teaching Quality Assurance and Enhancement, University of Exeter
We are moving towards a more holistic approach to reviewing our modules and programmes. In doing this we are trialling software to help us understand, in real time, where students are struggling and where things are going well. This data will be useful in supporting the review of our programmes and modules. We are building continuous feedback mechanism that more closely links the student feedback with the academics teaching the modules. Our aim is to develop a deeper engagement with our students and provide a closer connection with students as part of our quality review framework in order to grow the sense of student voice and community.
12:00 – 12:30
‘Looking at the Blackboard Enterprise Survey Tool’
Lee Jones, (Associate Director Collaborative Provision), Leeds Beckett University
At Leeds Beckett University we are re-focusing the concept of module evaluation around the ‘conversation’ with students, maintaining our current emphasis on the mid-module process and allowing courses/subjects and schools to facilitate a process that works for them. We are exploring how the functionality of the Blackboard Enterprise Survey tool may complement Academic School approaches to module Evaluation during 2019/20.
This presentation will be delivered by Skype for Business
12:30 – 13:00
‘Student Evaluation of Teaching: our brave new world’
Sarah Levison, Educational Governance Team Manager, Newcastle University
Newcastle will, in 2019/20, implement a number of changes to student evaluations of teaching, which includes the removal of end of module evaluations. Sarah’s presentation will remind colleagues of why Newcastle has taken this decision and will cover the types of evaluations that they will be running instead.
