How do JCU staff use the survey feedback?

Dr Leah Daniel 

"Subjects that provide great student experiences are those where the students themselves have had a say in how they work. Student feedback takes the guesswork out of improving my subjects because I’m not basing subject changes on the thoughts of only a few students who’ve spoken to me over the semester. The YourJCU student feedback is a way for me to hear from every student, so it’s a wonderful opportunity for students to have their voice heard at JCU."

"It’s so helpful when students provide constructive feedback about course content, because I can use it to make changes that would improve delivery of content to make it a better learning experience. I can also use feedback to improve assessment tasks and ensure relevancy to the content being taught. Student feedback about their learning, what helped them and what they would like more of, is valuable because it provides me with information on which learning activities are effective and which activities need to be improved."
