New University Course Survey ready for use

submitted by kaivola@augsburg.edu

Faculty,
The new University Course Survey is now in the hands of students. Remember that the recently faculty-approved form is shorter and focuses squarely on student perceptions of their course experiences. Faculty are expected to dedicate 5-10 minutes of class time to completing the form. Be sure to let students know ahead of time (and post on your Moodle site) so they can bring a mobile device; since forms are voluntary, the faculty member must leave the room for this activity. A recommended protocol is included in a message from the University Course Survey system. Using class time boosts response rates to an acceptable level, thus poor response rates are likely to be a failure to follow this protocol.

We also encourage good practice in having faculty collect their own customized data on pedagogy, assignments, and recommendations for future changes in the course using Moodle or pen and paper during class time.

Questions can be directed to Scott Krajewski, krajewsk@augsburg.edu or Diane Pike, pike@augsburg.edu. Chairs are asked to please make sure all adjunct faculty are informed about and supported in this process.

Thank you
Karen

Augsburg Day Student Government: Draft Action Plan on Current Institutional Climate and Survey

submitted by bakere@augsburg.edu

This action plan drafted by members of Augsburg Day Student Government (ADSG) summarizes the student feedback that was gathered during a panel-led discussion held on November 29th titled “What’s Next?” by ADSG.

The panel-led discussion consisted of the Student Body President facilitating discussion and six other representatives of ADSG responding to ideas and interests presented by students. Students who were in attendance voiced their expectations of ADSG and the university’s administration.

This document has four sections: what feedback has come from students, what is currently being addressed by non-ADSG parties, what changes ADSG wants to see occur, and ADSG actions/communications/timeline.

There is also a link to a survey that students may fill out with any further comments, feedback, ideas or concerns.

Draft Action Plan: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mJdOPkERJUJ3Gx25GBB1ecNKiNa_L1jaAyLzpFYVJxw/edit?usp=sharing
