Course Feedback

A Holistic Approach to Enriching Teaching and Learning

Syracuse University’s holistic approach to enriching teaching and learning focuses on faculty self-reflection, professional development, class observation, student course feedback, and measuring student learning. 

The Course Feedback Framework

 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 the IEA course feedback team. We look forward to working with you!
