Student Feedback on Teaching

The University of Pretoria is committed to the improvement of teaching and learning through dedicated support to lecturers and students. Students particularly are important participants in the improvement of the teaching practices of lecturers, and as such,  their feedback on the SFTS is of value to the lecturer. Watermark Course Evaluations & Surveys (formerly EvaluationKIT) enables students to provide feedback on the SFTS through a single sign-on in clickUP; anywhere and from any device, including phones.

The Student Feedback on Teaching Survey module enrolment dates for 2022 (and links) are:

The purpose of the evaluation of teaching is to assist lecturers to continuously improve their teaching, learning and assessment practices and the general quality of the modules they teach. Student feedback on the general quality of teaching and learning is regarded as one of the ways in which these practices can improve. Lecturers can also submit up to seven questions to enquire into the specific contexts of their modules.
