The Course Feedback Framework
Syracuse University’s holistic approach to enriching teaching and learning focuses on faculty self-reflection and professional development, class observation, measuring student learning, and student course feedback. Core elements of the course feedback framework include:
- Students have the opportunity to provide feedback on their courses regardless of delivery format, time schedule, or campus location.
- The process provides actionable feedback to improve teaching and learning, rather than individual instructor ratings.
- Each school/college continues to determine how course feedback is used within their respective area with regard to teaching, learning, promotion, and tenure.
- The majority of course feedback items address departmental and instructor needs; the form also includes a set of core questions used for all Syracuse University courses.
Gathering input from students, staff, faculty, and school/college leadership is an important activity for the IEA team. We are holding information sessions in the fall semester. If you have any questions or comments about the student ratings/course feedback process, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you!
