Target Audience: Teaching, Academic and APS Staff
Teachers PET (Teachers Performance Evaluation Tool) is a system for collecting feedback from students about classes and their delivery. Questionnaires are prepared for each class, they can be completely different and can run concurrently. Each questionnaire has a feedback window, so can be scheduled to open, receive feedback, then close automatically.
Feedback from the students can be completely anonymous, or if desired, can be signed with a DS username and password. Once submitted, the feedback is stored in an encrypted form within a database. The feedback collected is of two types Class or Delivery. Class is about the module itself, Delivery is about how the material was delivered by each member of staff.
There are two subsystems to Teachers PET the public one hosts the questionnaires, the private system allows staff to log in with a variety of roles. Staff can see their own Delivery feedback. Class registrars can see the Class feedback for their classes, Delivery stats, and redacted free text responses for the class (automated masking of staff names). Ug year coordinators can see All Ug Class and Delivery feedback (unredacted). Pg year coordinators can see All Pg Class and Delivery feedback (unredacted). The HoD and Director of teaching and learning can see Ug and Pg Class and Delivery feedback.
To aid evaluation of the feedback, non-free text responses are automatically averaged using an online pivot charting tool, allowing custom queries to be asked of the feedback, and easy evaluation of high and low values by way of a heatmap.
This workshop presentation will cover the background requirements for feedback, a demonstration of Teachers PET and an opportunity for participants to ask questions and engage in discussion regarding the tool.

CANCELLATION We want our events to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our events are delivered by consultants and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel events based on low numbers). Demand is high for our events with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel an event we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours).
