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.
