Read examples of how teaching teams have acted on eVALUate results and suggestions for improvement in units.

You Said, We Did

ACR211 Crime Prevention and Security

In response to feedback from students who have undertaken this unit in recent trimesters, we enhanced the unit in the following way:

  • The group project was challenging at times for those students studying entirely online. In response to this and to other suggestions, we removed the group project component of the assessment tasks.

ECE420 Supporting Children Making Transitions

In response to feedback from students who have undertaken this unit in recent trimesters, we enhanced the unit in the following way:

  • We included a focus on how to prepare and write a Transition Learning and Development Statement (TLDS), a key aspect of preschool children's transition to  primary school.
  • Unit assessments include an emphasis on early childhood and primary education for students who are enrolled in the dual Early childhood?/Primary course.
  • Previous students said the assessment load for this unit was heavy in comparison to other units (noting that this was a 2 credit point unit in the past), so we have made the Cloud reflective tasks optional rather than being part of an assessment task, and there are now 2 assignments instead of 3.
  • We revised Assessment Task 1 to assist students to gain an understanding of the transition process from key stakeholders’ perspectives, and to better understand the transition policy and practice context.

EEE743 Transforming Professional Teaching Practice Through Scholarship in Higher Education

In response to feedback from students who have undertaken this unit in recent trimesters, we enhanced the unit in the following ways:

  • We reviewed and amended module-based activities.
  • We provided additional resources, especially in the area of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
  • We categorised the resources to enable ease of choice based on students’ professional learning goals and focus.

EEE756 Health, Wellbeing and Inclusive Education

In response to feedback from students who have undertaken this unit in recent trimesters, we enhanced the unit in the following ways:

  • Some previous students felt a need for more synchronous engagement with their peers and the academic staff, so we have scheduled regular 'drop in' sessions across the trimester to support students to feel more connected with their peers and their learning.
  • Additionally, some students felt that they needed to have more discussion around the expectations of each of the assignments. In response, we have scheduled two dedicated BB Collaborate/Zoom Q & A Sessions to focus on each of the assignments.
