How Student Feedback Has Changed What We Do

As a department we are committed to improving the way we do things, and we believe that listening to our students is the most effective way of achieving this. Having collated feedback from mid-semester feedback forms, module evaluation questionnaires, course representatives and the National Student Survey we have made the following changes:

  • We specified formative-assessment opportunities in all modules.
  • We rolled out the assessment of seminar participation.
  • We increased the proportion of seen exams.
  • We moved our Reading Week so as to coincide with that of other Departments.
  • We introduced a 'Philosophy Department Champion' protocol for H.E.A.R. (Higher Education Achievement Report)
