Student Feedback on Teaching and Learning (SFTL)
Student Feedback on Teaching and Learning (SFTL), formerly known as Student Evaluation of Teaching and Learning (SETL), is one of the mechanisms for the University to gather feedback from students on the courses that they have taken. Following extensive consultation and piloting in Common Core courses, a new set of questionnaires will be implemented for all taught courses from the 2020-21 academic year.
The University’s Teaching and Learning Evaluation and Measurement Unit (T&LEMU) is charged with the responsibility of maintaining and operating a centralized system for the online administration and processing of the SFTL questionnaire. Findings are provided to Faculties, which will formulate action plans to address any identified issues for the purpose of enhancing teaching and learning. When formulating action plans, Faculties also take into account the findings of the Student Learning Experience Questionnaire (SLEQ).
