» Loop Course and Module Evaluation - Progress So Far

A message from the Pro Vice Chancellor for Learning, Teaching & Student Experience at USW.

“Thank you very much for your engagement with our Loop course and module evaluation so far. In just two weeks we have had over 4,000 course and 12,000 module evaluations completed.

“That is a great start, and we hugely appreciate it. There is still time to complete it if you have not done so already. We would like to see as many of you as possible complete Loop so that we are able to really understand where you think things are going well for you on your course, and where we need to improve. Once you complete it we will aim to give you and your peers on your course an initial response to your feedback before Christmas. So look out for that either in your classes or through Blackboard.

“I am also reviewing your Loop evaluations, as is your Students’ Union, to learn what we can do at University level to help support your course leaders and your lecturers to enhance your experience. Your views are important to us in making sure that we can deliver the best experience. We want you to be proud of your time as a USW student and for you to feel that you have been able to achieve your best. Your opinion counts in helping us do that.

“If you have not completed the survey, you can do so here: http://loop.southwales.ac.uk/.

“Many thanks for taking the time to do so, and best wishes for the rest of the term.”

Ben Calvert
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning, Teaching and Student Experience)
