Learner feedback is essential for assuring and enhancing quality at programme and module levels, by creating a formal opportunity for learners to examine, reflect and evaluate the overall operation of the module/programme during the academic year.
Obtaining learner feedback can occur both formally (e.g., through the use of surveys; class representative meetings) or informally (obtained in class discussions).
In April 2023, NCI implemented a refreshed Module Evaluation Survey to students registered on a pilot group of modules. The pilot survey template is available at the bottom of this article. The pilot is under review and the Learning, Teaching and Assessment Committee will consider a final version of the Module Survey in Autumn 2023, for full roll-out to all students on all modules in November 2023.
Currently, academic staff can get learner feedback on academic programmes from using data obtained from the Student.ie survey. Please contact the QIE office (QIE@NCIRL.IE) to get access to this data.
Programme teams can also get learners feedback on the programme through issuing of anonymous surveys to current students. The QIE office can support programme teams in developing and facilitating the administration of these programme surveys. Please contact the QIE office (QIE@NCIRL.IE) if you wish to issue a Programme Evaluation Survey.
