Developing multilevel leadership in the use of student feedback to enhance student learning and teaching practice
The aim of this project was to foster, develop and implement an academic leadership model with a focus on the effective use of student feedback to improve the quality of learning and teaching in order to enhance students’ educational experiences.
The project adopted a Distributed Action Research Model to engage a ‘vertical slice’ of leaders from the multi-levels that exist across the University. This was achieved by the establishment of:
- three School-based Action Research Teams (ART) (consisting of an ART Leader, the Head of School, Course Co-ordinators of chosen courses and a Facilitator external to the School)
- a Project Team (consisting of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) [DVC(A)], the Project Manager and Project Officer, ART Leaders, Heads of Schools and Leaders of Service and Student Support Departments
- Plenary sessions designed as an Institute-wide Community of Practice to which a vertical slice of the leadership across the university was invited IV. A Reference Group of internal and external experts
