Teaching Review Minutes

What are Teaching Review meetings?

Teaching Review meetings are held twice per semester and are an opprtunity for students in all years to feedback on their course unit lecture and teaching experiences via the student reps. Course unit lecturers are normally in attendance in order to answer any initial queries. The meetings are usually chaired by the Year Tutor. Notes and actions are taken at the meetings and published for the students to see. Any outstanding actions are followed up and acted upon before the next round of meetings.
