Include an additional SELT survey item

Include an additional survey item in the Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching (SELT) survey for units that are offered in Winter Term (202445).

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) automatically included in the survey, each teaching staff member (lecturer/tutor) has the opportunity to include one additional survey item of their own composition in relation to their teaching in a unit.

The additional survey item forms the fifth Likert scale item in Section B of the survey, relating to your teaching. It includes response options of Strongly Agree, Agree, Neutral, Disagree and Strongly Disagree. The survey item can focus on an aspect of an individual’s teaching practice or behaviour that they wish to seek feedback on. Some examples of optional items are:

Overall, [lecturer/tutor]…
  • provided clear instructions for completing the assignment task.
  • provided opportunities to demonstrate and share my [specific knowledge/skill] in classes.
  • teaches in ways that emphasize the relevance of this unit to my future profession.
  • supports the learning experience of online student.
  • shows interest in my welfare and learning by reaching out.
  • helped to increase my confidence in……[specific aspect of knowledge/skill development].

The opportunity to request an additional survey item will close on Monday, 15 July.

  • your name has been verified by your respective Faculty or School nominee for a SELT survey
