Evaluation of learning and teaching

Evaluations inform continuous improvement

Evaluation of subjects and teaching is multi-dimensional. It involves collecting evidence, from a variety of difference sources, for the purpose of improving the effectiveness of the learning-teaching process. An effective evaluation generates outcomes that are valid, reliable and indicate directions and action for development.

Evaluations provide opportunities to reflect on your experiences and achievements against stated goals and outcomes; identify strengths to be built on and opportunities for improvement.

Seek feedback on your subject content, design and teaching practice:

  • both formally and informally
  • from a variety of sources including your students, colleagues and peers, and
  • through your own process of critical reflection.
