There is an opportunity to include an additional item/question in the Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching (SELT) survey for units offered in Professional Term 1 (202107).
The SELT surveys are conducted for all coursework units with 10 or more students (i.e. staff do not have to request for such surveys) in accordance with the Evaluation of Learning and Teaching Policy and related procedures.
In addition to the SELT core items (rating-type questions) that will be automatically included in the survey, each teaching staff member (lecturer/tutor) has the opportunity to include one additional item of their own composition in relation to their teaching in a unit.
The additional item forms the fifth Likert scale item in Part B of the survey relating to your teaching (see SELT core items above). All items in Part B start with the stem 'Overall, [Lecturer/Tutor name]…' therefore the optional item should follow the stem and focus on an aspect of an individual’s teaching practice/behaviour that they wish to seek feedback on. Refer to Staff FAQs on Learning & Teaching Website for examples of additional questions (Q18 specifically).
Personalised email invitations to write an additional item/question for the SELT surveys have already been sent to staff members, who have been confirmed as teaching in unit(s) that are offered in Professional Term 1 (202107).
The opportunity to include an additional item/question in SELT survey will close on Monday 1 February 2021.
With regards to personalised email invitations, one of the following situations applies to each ACU staff:
Situation A: If you received an email invitation sent from Evaluations.LTC@acu.edu.au, it means:
Situation B: If you did not receive an email invitation, then the criteria listed in Situation A were not met.
Situation C: If you received the email invitation and you are not teaching in a unit that is shown on the ‘Evaluations’ block in LEO front page, please inform Evaluations.LTC@acu.edu.au immediately. We can then remove your name from the specific survey(s) before students are invited to complete the surveys.
For further information on SELT surveys, please visit the Learning and Teaching webpage.
All enquiries regarding the SELT process should be addressed to Evaluations.LTC@acu.edu.au.
