Good Practice in Schools
Schools across the university have developed numerous means of promoting the National Student Survey to their students and responding to the outcomes. We are currently in the process of bringing together these practices in time for the launch of the 2014 NSS. This page will document good practice in place at Cardiff University. If you have any ideas you would like to contribute to this page please contact the Education Team.
Promoting the NSS
The NSS is just one source of feedback. It is important that students recognise that all their feedback is listened to and acted on appropriately. Highlighting how feedback is used can help students throughout their degress programme and will help students to understand the importance of completing the NSS, and how seriously the outcomes are taken, when their times comes to complete it.
Schools may find the following activities useful in helping to highlight the importance of feedback from students:
- Student Newsletters (CARBS/EARTH/MATHS)
- Developing understanding through communication – Feedback week (BIOSI), School Facebook forum (PSYCH), Electronic discussion forum (SOHCS)
- Creating a ‘community’ and student away days (JOMEC)
- Focus Groups (CLAWS/CPLAN/MEDIC/PHYSX/SONMS)
