General Feedback Form

Provide basic feedback below. If you wish to write a more detailed unit guide, scroll past this form and fill out the second form below.

Name *
Type of contribution *
Select all that apply. To write a complete unit guide use the separate form below.
Detail below, the changes you suggest we make to the guide. We will be in contact you via email to discuss this further if necessary. If you are referring to a unit guide please specify which unit you are talking about.

Unit Guide Form

Write a complete unit guide below. Please be aware that this may prove to be of a time-consuming process, but will be highly valuable to students. If you only wish to make a minor correction to an existing unit guide, please use the form above and select “Minor update or correction of a unit guide” for Type of correction.

Note that we may adjust the words you use when they appear in the official document. Please try your best to use professional language and avoid personal comments about teaching staff. The SAS guide is intended to be ‘by students for students’ and we are not trying to rate the performance of lecturers (this can already be done through eVALUate).

Most of the questions below have a description of what we are looking for. In addition, see the existing unit guides within the SAS guide for examples.

Name *
Specify the unit name and/or unit code you are reviewing (do one at a time).
OPTIONAL: what did you shorten/ affectionately call the unit.
If you select 'Earlier' please answer the next question
First state which semester did you took the unit in. Information is constantly changing for many units. Do you believe the information you are providing is still accurate? Perhaps you took the unit more recently than an existing guide or there isn't one that exists and therefore having one is better than nothing. Skip if 'Earlier' was not selected.
What learning activities were run for this unit? *
Select all that apply
What was the style of teaching? Did you find them worthwhile attending? Was attendance or participation assessed? etc. If there any learning activities that were run in much the same way as each other, state this (e.g. a lecture and a workshop are essentially the same thing in SOME cases).
Were there iLectures for this unit? *
Specify WHICH learning activities were recorded. How did the style of the learning activities lend themselves to being recorded? Was it (interactivity aside) essentially the same as being there or was there some aspects that you needed to attend to gain access to? Did the lecturer hand write notes on the board? (Was this an issue?)
Would you recommend the textbook? *
If multiple select the highest option which any of the textbooks satisfies.
How was the textbook useful/ not useful? Could you get away with not purchasing it (e.g because the lectures adequately covered all the material)? Write NA if not applicable.
Specify the file format (e.g. pdf, word, powerpoint) they were uploaded in. Whether hard copies we provided. For each comment on the overall quality of them, how useful they were for preparing for assessments etc.
e.g. computer software (R, excel etc.), career advice, real-world applications, business understanding, industry representative presentations etc.
We understand this is highly subjective but it helps answer the frequently asked question "was that unit hard". We will accept half points if you so please. You may wish to be informed by the ratings given to other units to gain a relative measure of difficulty.
You may also wish to place a justification for the difficulty rating you gave here. You may have a particular assessment you see as noteworthy (or indeed infamous) or some tips for success in the unit. Provide anything you are yet to tell us but you think is important here.
State the unit name/code and topics from the previous unit from the previous unit. Describe how they were useful for the unit you are reviewing. The previous units you mention do NOT necessarily have to be prerequisites.
Was there any overlap with a unit you took at the same time.
(Topics to keep your notes for). If you happen to know of knowledge in this unit that is useful for units taken in future let us know.
To your knowledge will the same lecturer still be lecturing the unit in its next offering. Should a change in teaching staff occur is this likely to significantly change the unit (e.g. due to the idiosyncratic style of the lecturer). Do you know of any other changes that might happen that will effect the unit (e.g. curriculum changes).
