Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching (SELT) survey interim individual reports – support for staff
Published: Wednesday 14th December 2016
The interim Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching (SELT) survey reports, for units taught in Semester 2 and other study periods in the second half of this year, will be made accessible to relevant staff on 16 December.
When reflecting on SELT data from previous classes, it is both useful and necessary for staff to reflect, interpret and understand their evaluation data, as well as think about the ways this information can be used to improve teaching practice, the curriculum and so on.
A range of resources have been developed to support staff in their reflective practice. These resources include information on understanding the SELT report, advice on interpreting qualitative comments, and the important process of communicating to students the outcomes of the evaluation process. There are also recordings of academics discussing how student feedback is used at both faculty and unit levels.
In addition to support for teaching academics, there are resources specifically aimed at supervisors of teaching staff. These include advice on interpreting the Faculty and School level SELT reports and how to facilitate open and constructive conversations about teaching with their staff.
The main aims of these resources are to promote positive staff engagement with teaching/unit evaluations and to encourage staff to view their data as one source of the information needed to assess the quality of a unit and the teaching in that unit.
