JCU students should refer to the YourJCU Subject and Teaching Survey information in the Students website.

Information for JCU Staff

Students are at the heart of our University. As part of JCU's commitment to improving the quality of subjects and teaching, we regularly seek feedback from students on their student learning and teaching experience.

The YourJCU Subject and Teaching Survey is an online survey instrument used by students to provide feedback on subjects and teachers. Based in LearnJCU, the survey can be accessed by students directly, by logging into LearnJCU, or by a personalised link distributed by email.

The survey is easy to use, secure, centralised, and provides an avenue for students to share confidential feedback on subjects and teaching quality. It also provides staff and supervisors with reporting options to assist fast and effective review, reflection and revision of learning and teaching materials and methodologies, in line with professional development, discipline standards and institutional strategic goals.

YourJCU Subject Surveys are automatically conducted for every undergraduate and postgraduate coursework offerings. YourJCU Teaching Surveys are optional. Prior to student surveys going live, Lecturers have the ability to opt themselves in for a teaching survey for any undergraduate or postgraduate coursework offering that they teach in to*. (The opt in process is outlined in the Survey Handbook, available below)

*The data surrounding the relationship between a Subject Coordinator, Lecturer and a Subject originate in the TRDB (Teaching Roles Data Base) and the responsibility of ensuring this data is correct lays with the Colleges/areas of the university, not the Teaching Evaluation team. Please contact the TRDB Administrator in your College/area if you require data in the TRDB to be updated.
