YourJCU Subject and Teaching Survey

Students Feedback and complaints YourJCU Subject and Teaching Survey

Information for Students

Students are at the heart of JCU and as part of our commitment to improving the quality of our subjects and teaching, we regularly seek feedback on the JCU student experience.

The YourJCU Subject and Teaching Survey is designed to obtain student feedback on the quality of subjects and teaching at JCU. It's an opportunity for students to express their opinions about their student experience. Student feedback supports JCU to improve subject content and delivery.

Survey timing

Surveys are held throughout the year and are based on the subjects you are enrolled in (see survey calendar). An invitation to participate will be sent to your JCU email account during the study period. You can use the survey link in the email to access your surveys, or you can access the survey via the Feedback Tab in LearnJCU.

Surveys close 48 hours after the official end of the examination period. See the Survey FAQs for further information.

How do JCU staff use the survey feedback?

 

"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."

Lecturer, Mathematics Education

 

"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."
