Abstract / Description

This article describes how a Student Led Module Feedback Scheme (SLMFS) was initiated at one UK University to enhance staff-student relationships and to improve student outcomes. The scheme was developed by academics in partnership with the Students Union (SU) and students. The SLMFS aimed to enhance the student experience at granular level, in ‘real time’ during 30 week-long teaching modules. The article defines the specificity of the SLMFS within the research context and describes how the theme of ‘student-staff partnership’ runs across the scheme, including during the project management and the evaluation phases. It critically reflects on how the scheme has been instrumental in making inroads into improving the experience of students and staff across the university. It analyses the way in which the SLMFS is being used by staff and students to co-create action plans to initiate pedagogical changes, and thus ‘closing the loop’ of the feedback cycle.
