Summary and reflection

This week we focussed on developing our understanding about the student experience. We explored a wide range of definitions of ‘student experience’ as well as how to evaluate the student experience.

We progressed further with putting theory into practice with your mini-evaluation task. We hope that we have provided you with support and resources to help you identify your personal enhancement goal, select a method and articulate your evaluation plan, and act on your plan to carry out a mini-evaluation.

Through some of the resources and activities we further explored:

  • factors influencing student experience
  • a range of perspectives on the student experience
  • use of student evaluation surveys
  • concept of ‘closing the loop’ and ‘feedback loop’.

Reflection point

As you know that there are two main purposes of reflection in this course:

  1. To relate this to your own practice for personal learning and development
  2. To complete the FULT program you will be asked to submit artefacts from your FULT learning, so it will be useful to collect and keep a copy of these as part of your reflective ePortfolio.

If you are planning to submit your ePortfolio as a requirement of the FULT certificate, it is now time to draw on your reflective data in the ePortolio in order to complete activities 3(a) and 3(b).

Details for the ePortfolio requirements are available in the next step.
