The Informatics feedback pledge and course survey reports.
All Informatics courses will provide you with feedback on your progress, in a variety of different ways. For example, this may be written comments on your work, a feedback sheet detailing performance in different areas, discussion in tutorials, or a special review lecture. You should always take careful note of feedback and make use of it in your studies.
The University has prepared a range of materials on feedback, and how to use it to best effect, gathered on the Enhancing Feedback website. For information about how and when you will receive feedback in specific courses, see the individual course websites; if in doubt, ask your lecturer or tutor directly.
You can also provide feedback to lecturers about their courses. During the semester you can do this in person or by email; through your course representatives; or to the ITO. Courses will also distribute feedback questionnaires at the end of semester: please complete and return these, to help with improving courses in the future.
Informatics currently is making significant efforts to improve its feedback. As part of this, we have committed ourselves to the Informatics Feedback Pledge toward our students, which establishes the following standards:
You will know what feedback you will receive
The School of Informatics welcomes constructive comments on its courses, and suggestions for improvement. In Week 9 of each semester you will be sent a unique link to an 'EvaSys' Course Evaluation survey to complete for each course. Your responses will be published anonymously soon after the surveys have closed by the Informatics Teaching Organisation on the 'Course Survey Reports' webpage (link below) and will be read by the Director of Teaching, Year Organiser, and to the Course Lecturer to aid future course development.
The reports made available to students online are based on all responses to all multiple-choice questions (with the exception of those questions relating to individual course lecturers which will not be published online, but will be read by the Director of Teaching, Year Organiser, and to the Course Lecturer), plus the text reponses to the following questions:
Session 2015/16 surveys for Semester 1 courses are now open.
Survey for semester 2 courses will be available from Semester 2, Week 9.
