Evaluation of Teaching

Student Feedback

Student Feedback on Teaching (SFT) is one way in which Lakehead University assesses the quality of teaching and student learning experience.

In 2013, Lakehead University started gathering this feedback online in addition to on paper.

Many courses are now evaluated online but professors have the option to continue using paper-based feedback forms for their courses, and as such, students may be asked to complete a mix of paper and online forms.

Mid-Term Feedback

One method for finding out how a course is going is to check-in with students midway through the term. Faculty can use the Survey Tool with MyCourseLink to create an anonymous survey.

Example questions for mid-term feedback:

  1. Stop: What would you like us to stop doing?
  2. Start: What suggestions do you have?
  3. Continue: What is being done well that you would like to continue?
  4. Good practice/highlights?
  5. Any other comments?
  6. Do you have any comments about the new feedback form?
