Questions for Student FGI's

These are the sorts of questions I'm thinking about asking students to get a feel for their experience with the current course - and angled to get info for our development. Additions...changes?

  • What was it about the course you enjoyed the most?...what stands out as being really excellent...that you'd never get rid of if the course was to change?
  • What would you recommend changing...doing away with?
  • How would you describe the teaching and learning approach of this course?
  • What was the hardest part of the course?
  • If you had to list the types of activities you did on the course,what would they be?
  • What were some of your favourite activities? Why?
  • How did you tackle your study for this course?
  • What, if any, support did you need during the course?
  • Having done the course, what, in your opinion would be the main challenges for it to run as a distance course?(f-f group) …what is/might be difficult, from your experience?
  • Is there anything else you think might be useful for us to know? --Fiona 01:26, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
