The Role of Feedback

In this module we will guide you through the process of harnessing good qualitative data from your class to use in feedback to relevant stakeholders.

As Interest Group Councillors, you have put yourself forward to be an advocate of Student Democracy to make UL a better place, ULSL and your classmates. Thank you! Don’t forget that it is imperative that the procedures and timelines are respected, as non-quantifiable results or extended delays in returning on feedback can render the representation procedure null and void, especially in a time-bound issue.

While engaging with the representative democracy element of feedback, you will see phrases such as ‘statistically significant’ or ‘a group’ or ‘a proportion’ of your class. What do these phrases mean and how can you ensure that you have the correct type of feedback in order to resolve an issue?

Check out this video from a previous Student Council member Ben Kiely. Remember when trying to influence change let the numbers do the talking. Here Ben talks about modular feedback, but this process can be used when garnering feedback in your particular area of interest.
