Student feedback on the classroom experience is a valuable source of data on the quality of instruction. There have been recent changes to the tools and questions used to gather this information and the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning has information on these changes here. There are also further resources available for instructors and students who wish to familiarize themselves with these processes.

We also encourage instructors to gather mid-course feedback on the quality of instruction. The Taylor Institute outlines the advantages of gathering such feedback, and suggests best practices for best getting this data and integrating it into your teaching practice.  If you are interested in conducting a mid-course survey, please contact the Office Teaching and Learning and let us know your course number and the dates you would like to conduct this anonymous, online survey.
