Key Achievements

Appendix B: Evidence of Teaching Effectiveness

 

Student Comments on SOCL11055 T1

 

2012 - Sociology is a difficult concept to learn however this course and the lecturers were there to help my understanding of the course.

 

2012 - The lecturers provided good feedback on forums which helped in learning.

 

2012 - Flexibility in studying when it’s convenient for me. The way the Moodle is set up makes it clear what is required each week. The ability to be able to post forums or email lecturers.

 

2012 - I found this course extremely interesting considering I did not realise that large societal problems can impact individual’s problems and attitudes. Every week was always a new and intriguing topic.

 

2012 - The best aspect of this course were the lectures. Very informative and fast paced.

 

2012 - Textbook was very easy to read and study, and I enjoy having the study guide to keep me on track.

 

2012 - The content of the course was highly enjoyable and informative.

 

2012 - The best aspect of this course were the assessment pieces 

 

2012 - I found that the study guide, resource materials and textbook were very interesting and helped me to both learn and be engaged at the same time. The lecturers/tutors were also approachable, willing to help and very knowledge when it came to the course content.

 

2011 - Flexibility of topic choice for assignments.  Relevant to life.Exploration of social issues.The interesting links to movies and TV programs to compliment readings and lectures.  The Annotated Bibliography example was very helpful in terms of learning a new genre.  Lectures that don't involve reading the Powerpoint and do involve lots of examples and explanations of points.

 

2011 - Great online support from lectures.  Love the idea of discussion forums esp. for flex students.  Good content - I enjoyed this subject and thought the content was also delivered well through online resources and lecture material

 

2011 - The content was very interesting and I feel that it has provided me with the ability to analyse my university studies critically. The teaching staff were always willing to answer questions and receive feedback throughout the course.

 

2011 - The whole course is very good and interesting. This course is good as it allows you to think in a way that is not natural to your own train of thought, it helps us to see the world in a different light- a way which we never really acknowledge before.  The assignments are also good as they allowed us to voice our own opinion about a certain topic, some of our weeks work related to the assignment, this made it easier to write.

 

 

Student Comments on SOCL19066 T1

2013 - Wendy was very helpful and considerate. I had a family crisis early in the term and she noticed I hadn't been able to log into Moodle and she checked on me to make sure everything was okay.

 

2013 - Wendy is a very thoughtful and considerate teacher who takes into consideration different student needs.   Also Wendy is very thorough in providing feedback which I find extremely helpful.

 

2013 - Having an approachable lecturer and one who is interested in what she teaches.

 

2013 - Wendy's friendly, positive attitude is very encouraging and conducive to learning. Interesting resources provided. Assessment tasks relevant, and feedback provided was detailed and helpful.

 

2013 - The journal articles were very helpful and interesting.

 

2012 - Wendy Hillman is brilliant! Monday at 16:33.Wendy Hillman is wonderful!
Monday at 16:40 via Mobile • Like • 1.These two posts are from our closed student Facebook forum. I agree with these posts, because Wendy Hillman has been an inspirational lecturer who is always approachable and has always explained every assessment piece to the subject clearly, concisely and accurately.

 

2012 - I have had Wendy as a lecturer for four years and have progressed dramatically through her wonderful attitude and clear explanations to requirements of the assessment piece.
Wendy organises her Moodle pages in a logical and explicable manner which is easy to follow because the structure is straightforward and uncomplicated.

 

2012 -This lecturer is always helpful, easy to communicate with, accessible, and interesting.  The assessment facilitated learning by incorporating tasks which may well be useful in our careers, and is relevant to the course material.  Thanks for a great term!

 

2012 - Understanding facilitator.  Clear directions provided for written assessment.  Workable word limits.

 

2012 - The manner in which the assignments were broken into 2 which helped me understand the sociological theories and perspectives a lot more clearly and how to achieve success in the course

 

2012 - Wendy is a great lecturer and offers fantastic support! It is hard to learn being an external student, however, she responds to e-mails promptly and answers all questions. Other lecturers do not do this so sometimes I feel as though I am on my own. This is never the case with Wendy as she is always available!! Wendy also provides a great study guide so you know what you are supposed to be doing. Other external courses require this!   :)

 

2012 - The lecturer was very friendly and approachable. She was easy to contact and replied promptly to any queries. She knew her subject and offered encouraging feedback to all assessments and Moodle comments.

 

2012 - Wendy is an asset to this course and as always experienced offers on-going support and guidance.

 

Student Comments on SOCL11056 T2


2012 - I appreciated receiving a booklet with all the set readings in it rather than having to juggle through a myriad of pdf's on my computer. The lectures were very good and helped me to understand the set material.

 

2012 - I find the feedback from my lecturer to be prompt and informative. The information within the resources is educational and has been valuable to my learning experience.

 

2012 - I find the lectures are a strong element in the course and I am able to grasp the concepts covered really well. They are well prepared and thought out. Well Done Wendy!

 

2012 - Really enjoyed this subject. Interesting topics and lecturer was easy to watch and follow on online recorded lectures. Even though sociology isn't my major I will definitely be looking into doing a couple more subjects as my electives next year. Thanks.

 

2012 - The course was presented in a way that was interesting even though I am doing this externally and from another country it is a lot harder to be in contact and be the loop as much but I found the course very rewarding and interesting.

 

2012 - The best aspect of the course was the support and feedback from lecturers marking assignments. The time taken to check work and comment was outstanding.

 

2011 - Thanks Wendy, I am extremely happy with my mark, I just like to know in which way my knowledge may be faulty. Appreciate you clearing it up as I don't know any other students I can't share it with them anyway.  Thank you for a great term again and have really enjoyed both sociology subjects with you this year :) 

 

2011 - Thanks Wendy, I know we haven't communicated much but before the term finished I just wanted to let you know, that your feedback has been exceptionally encouraging, thank you again. 

 

2011- Thank-You Wendy, I very much appreciate your feedback and feel somewhat more confident in tackling this assessment, yes I have read some parts of Willis but will again read through it, you never know I may have a light bulb moment second time around :) 

 

2011 - Thank you so much for your understanding Wendy, you have no idea how much I appreciate it.  I will get onto the site now and submit the request.  Once again, THANK YOU! 

 

2011- Hi Wendy, Thanks for your speedy reply. I did some more research last night and
found quite a bit on attitudes of society and costs to society (e.g.
public health implications) which I think warrant sociological
interest, so am now well on my way.  Thanks for the feedback. 

 

2011- Hi Wendy, Firstly, thank you for your time yesterday afternoon. I have done as
you advised and emailed Michele directly in regards to my grade for
assessment 1.

 

Student Comments on SOCL19069 T2

 

2012 - The feedback given back to me was easily understood and Wendy explained areas where it could have improved my assessments.

 

2012 - I always find the lecturer Wendy Hillman is very supportive and answers your questions straight away. I feel this is very important to me as you don't have that face to face contact which means that you’re not left pondering all the time or wondering if you’re doing things correctly.
