Purpose of survey: The University runs the  Learning and Teaching Survey every year so we can understand how things are going for students and make positive changes around the University based on student feedback. This survey is the main way the University gathers information from students about their overall experience of studying at this University, and uses the information to set priorities for the next year(s). 

Prizes: If you complete the survey you will be in the prize draw for 1x $500, 2x $200 and 50x $50 Prezzy cards.  Prizes will be drawn after the survey closes and students will be notified via their University email.

Please note that Survey email invites will have the ‘from’ address: learningandteaching@auckland.ac.nz

How does the University use the student feedback?

Analysis of rated questions and open-ended comments provides important information to the University about students’ experience of learning and teaching. Results are reported to University committees and to faculties and service divisions.

What happens next?

The Pro Vice-Chancellor(Education) meets with each faculty dean and senior staff to review what students have said and what is planned in response. Student feedback is used to help determine University and faculty priorities for the next year.

Staff Resources for Survey Promotion

Staff can do a lot to help students understand the importance of the Learning and Teaching Survey, and every year the Academic Quality Office creates resources to assist staff to communicate with students about the survey.  The PowerPoint slides about the survey (below) can be shown to classes, and information will be posted on the University website and on Canvas for students to see.

More about the survey

We ask a random (representative) sample of students for feedback on their experience at the University, so if you have been invited please let us know what you think, so we can build on what we’re getting right and make improvements where things aren’t working.

Questions have an emphasis on the learning and teaching aspects of students’ experience University as well as social factors which support students’ learning.  Survey results are reported in aggregate to faculties each year and assist faculties to set priorities and areas of focus in learning and teaching.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact the Academic Quality Office at quality@auckland.ac.nz.
