Student Feedback

In order to better understand, and react quickly to, the successes and challenges of learning in a remote environment, CNDLS has been collaborating with the Office of Assessment and Decision Support and the Office of the Provost to capture students’ voices throughout 2020 as we work and learn in a virtual environment.

Fall 2020 Feedback

We have collected and summarized the results of our first three student surveys, Wave 1 and Wave 2. Please view the summary of those surveys along with strategies that help address the issues. To view results specific to each survey, please view:

Tip of the Week

Looking for ideas to get your semester started? Consider inviting new students to meet with you individually or in small groups to discuss your and their expectations for the course, or publish your Canvas course early to allow students to preview the course and meet each other. Explore ideas like these, together with your colleagues, at Digital Learning Days this week! Learn more about Digital Learning Days here.
