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 link distributed by email.

The survey is able to be personalised, easy to use, secure, centralised, and provides confidential feedback on subjects and teaching quality. It also provides staff and supervisors with advanced 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. Subject Coordinators have the ability to opt-in teaching staff for any undergraduate or postgraduate coursework offering. The opt-in process is described in the Quick Guides available below.

How do Students complete the survey?

If, for some reason, students fail to see or receive the email containing their survey link, the survey can be accessed through LearnJCU.
