Good morning class, I am Professor Finch. Take your seats as we explore the wondrous world of mathematics.
Professor Finch is a mathematical professor and is passionate about teaching the secrets of maths to young and curious minds. But he has to wonder if his way of teaching is understandable to the many promising students who attend his lectures. Is there an area in which he needs to improve? Is he using enough examples?
What brought all these thoughts to Professor Finch’s mind was that the head of department (HOD) has been inquiring about student participation, learning progress and eagerness in lectures. But how do you know, or pick up on all these things while teaching? Passion and enthusiasm takes over as soon as you’re standing in front of your class. There is also no time to give each student individual attention to hear their thoughts about the lecture.
The solution to Professor Finch’s dilemma would be for the head of department to setup a “lecturer evaluation” form for students to complete. This evaluation can be done every semester, yearly or however often the department sees fit.
To avoid losing precious time during a lecture, the “lecturer evaluation” form can set setup electronically to form part of a workflow. Students who attend Professor Finch’s lecturers, will receive a link to click on, and this will take them to the form to be completed.
Once students have completed the form and clicked the save button, all the data will be anonymously saved to the “Lecturer evaluation” workflow. The department can then review this information, evaluate student satisfaction and compile feedback for the HOD in a separate “Lecturer evaluation feedback” workflow.
From the above overview, the department administrator can see, evaluate and calculate averages for every individual question. The averages can be captured in the “compile feedback form” below, which is automatically emailed to the HOD for review.
Once the HOD has received the feedback on the evaluation of Professor Finch, she can complete another form to provide her own feedback and/or any suggestions she might have, which is then sent directly to Professor Finch via an email.
In one simple solution, the HOD can have all the information regarding student participation, learning progress and eagerness in lectures. And Professor Finch will know exactly where he needs to improve or make some changes in his lectures - if necessary.
If you want to make sure that your students get the best classes and that your lecturers are in touch with how their classes are experienced by their student the you can copy this combo-solution directly into your Kotive account for free.
