1st place: Greta Mazeikaite (Life and Medical Sciences)
Greta was keen to focus on the positive as well as the negative feedback, which we greatly encourage. She and the other Reps also devised a paper and online questionnaire. The former was completed using Microsoft Word, and the latter using Qualtrics. Both questionnaires had the same qualitative and quantitative questions in order to maintain validity. The paper questionnaires were given out at the start of the mandatory lecture and students were asked to give it back at the end. The online questionnaire link was sent out to the Psychology group chat and students who have not completed the paper version in class, were asked to complete one online. They received 50 responses- 36 from paper form and 14 online. They discussed this feedback at the Programme Committee Meeting; they recorded the feedback and planned to create a powerpoint slide for the Level 5 students to inform them of the feedback they received, the issues they have raised and what actions are being held in place. She also volunteered to take part in the 'voice-it' campaign and attended the rep social.
2nd place: Ellie James (Business)
She has collected feedback on all semester A modules. The main concerns that students had were the bunching of some assignment deadlines. Some modules were praised for the good teaching received. She collected this feedback by handing out forms for her classmates to fill out. Some assignments received a few days extension which allowed students to allocate more time to get them right. She keeps her classmates up to date on events happening in the Business School, by creating discussions within modules on Canvas.
3rd place: Venkatesh (Computer Science)
Venkatesh was nominated by an SCO for going above and beyond to get feedback from students and has engaged with all the meetings and forums. He takes initiative in organising events within the school and is very active in his role.
