Student Led Teaching Fellowships 2011/12

Student-led Teaching Fellowships 2011-12

​​

​Cardiff Met's student-led teaching fellowships, provide students with the opportunity to recognise and reward good teaching practice. The Learning and Teaching Development Unit (LTDU) in partnership with the Students' Union (SU) have identified five categories and related criteria under which students can provide evidence-based nominations. The categories were chosen to reflect areas identified in the NSS, the University's Learning and Teaching Strategy, and important sector-wide themes.

Best Feedback

Students were asked:- Have you received feedback that helps you recognise good performance and outlines expectations?

Did feedback promote conversation around learning with your peers or the tutor? Did feedback motivate you to learn and assist you in reaching your desired performance by providing examples and opportunities for improvement before the final grade? Was the feedback provided early enough to make a difference?
