At Loughborough we use a network of Feedback Administrators across the University who do the groundwork for Module Feedback with a little DIGing; helping to sow the seeds for Module Feedback in the different Schools across campus and making the Module Feedback set-up process victorious. We will discuss why the DIG (Data Integrity Gateway) is needed at Loughborough, how we go everyone on board and share the successes and the (tiny) lessons learnt from the first Semester of implementation. And there’s no point in gathering feedback from students if you’re not going to do something about it. We will discuss how we have developed and implemented a ‘Closing the Feedback Loop’ process within explorance Blue for our Module Leaders to respond to students letting them know if the module will have to “make do” with its current approach and why, or whether steps will be taken to “mend” the suggestions that arise from the feedback.
