Which words would you use to describe how you feel about your university experience? Exciting? Stressful? Rewarding? From April 18-21, the Teaching and Learning Evaluation and Measurement Unit (T&LEMU) invited students to participate in an interactive exhibition to present the Student Learning Experience Questionnaire (SLEQ) and hear their feedback about university life. T&LEMU is excited to report that over 400 students and staff participated in the four-day event.

In addition to celebrating the 10th anniversary of SLEQ, the event also aimed to showcase the importance of educational data at HKU. The exhibition theme was “The Arts of Educational Data” in order to highlight how (big) data is used to monitor learning progression in higher education today. Educational display boards showed how HKU uses student data to close the feedback loop and promote quality improvement of teaching and learning. Several case studies of student feedback were also featured on topics such as hall life and international exchange. Students are encouraged to participate in the SLEQ.

The exhibition also featured an interactive component where students were invited to participate in several “message boards” and pin up words or emojis to describe how they feel about their university experience. Popular descriptions included friendship, freedom, adventurous, and challenging. Students also showed their artistic side with a fun university life colouring board.
All of the T&LEMU staff enjoyed interacting with students and members of the HKU community. A big thank you to all who helped and participated!

HKU conducts institutional surveys on students’ learning experiences regularly to yield information for analysis and renewal of curriculum and pedagogy. The findings help ensure and enhance the quality of learning experiences.

We now invite all first, second and final year undergraduate students to complete the Student Learning Experience Questionnaire – Undergraduate (SLEQ – UG); and all final year taught-postgraduate students to fill out the Student Learning Experience Questionnaire – Taught Postgraduate (SLEQ – TPG). Both surveys are conducted on-line. While different curricula may have different start times for the survey, all targeted students should have received / will receive an e-mail invitation on the start day which provides you with a link that directs to the survey. You can also access the questionnaire through the “My e-learning” tab in HKU Portal, as well as this direct link: http://sleq.hku.hk/1617.

The Teaching & Learning Evaluation and Measurement Unit (T&LEMU) is excited to announce its recent acceptance as an institutional member of NEQMAP. Established in 2013 and facilitated by UNESCO Bangkok, NEQMAP stands for the Network on Education Quality Monitoring in the Asia-Pacific.

As a NEQMAP institutional member, T&LEMU will be able to participate in the Network activities, as well as join the conversation and expertise exchange with other members across Asia-Pacific. The Unit is looking forward to take part in this dynamic knowledge sharing and continue to learn about innovative tools for student learning assessments and pedagogy (e.g. “21st century skills”), with the goal in mind to improve teaching and learning on campus. NEQMAP also encourages Asia-Pacific countries to share tips on how education data can be used by policymakers and practitioners in the community to improve the student experience.

At HKU, our vision for the coming decade is to be Asia’s Global University through internationalisation, innovation and interdisciplinarity, all converging to create impact. The effort of the Unit joining NEQMAP as an institutional member offers a great opportunity to engage in international collaborations and to produce and disseminate innovations across disciplinary boundaries, ultimately making a positive impact on education.

What is the goal of NEQMAP?

The Network provides services to “improve the quality of learning in the Asia-Pacific by enhancing the use of student learning assessment to strengthen education systems.” By providing a platform, member institutions are able to learn from each other on issues that relate to student learning assessment. Topics usually include promoting quality and equity in education, evaluating student performance, and producing actionable data.

In addition to providing a forum for communication, NEQMAP facilitates activities to further encourage information sharing and cooperation among Asia-Pacific countries. Examples of activities fall under three main categories:

  • Capacity development. Training workshops, technical support, and expert advice.
  • Comparative studies, case studies, and policy briefs.
  • Knowledge sharing. Annual meetings, online knowledge portal, and online discussions.
