Include an additional SELT question

Staff can include an additional question in the Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching (SELT) survey for units that are offered in Professional Term 7 (202370).

The SELT surveys are conducted for all coursework units with 10 or more students 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 Section B of the survey relating to your teaching. All items in Section 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 for examples of additional questions (Q18 specifically).

The opportunity to include an optional, additional item/question in SELT survey will close on Monday, 16 October 2023.
