» 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)

» Loop – New & Improved for 2017

Loop is USW’s online course and module evaluation system. It’s your main way of telling the University directly how your course and modules are going.

When is Loop open for feedback?

Loop is open all year round. This ensures we capture the views of all students irrespective of their start date and the duration of their course or modules.

However, right now (November) is a great time for students who started in September to tell us how your course is going. Giving feedback early in the year means that we might make to make changes soon enough for you to benefit from them! Therefore, we are very keen for you to put in feedback between 6th-26th November.

How does Loop work?

Loop is an online tool which anyone can access using their University IT account. It is available in both English and Welsh at the following link:

Loop

What happens after you’ve given feedback?

We are asking Course Leaders to look through the results and provide an initial response to students within a few weeks of 26th November, and publish this on Blackboard. So your cohort should get a response from your course team during December.
