Student Feedback on Teaching 2019-20 – Method Preference Selection Now Available for Instructors

The Student Feedback on Teaching (SFT) management form is now open for instructors to indicate their survey method preferences for their scheduled courses.

By accessing the form, instructors can change their preferred method from the default of online administration to paper administration. Choices can be customized for each course section the instructor teaches.

In 2018, the SFT management form moved to myInfo, replacing the former ‘Opt-Out’ form in myInfo. The current SFT Management form is found in the same location within myInfo under For Faculty / Academic Profile, or by visiting this page. Following the first collection period for the 2019-20 academic year in August and September, the SFT management form is now open again from Monday, Jan. 6 until Saturday, Jan. 25 for preference selection for year-long and winter term courses.

The SFT management form is consistent with the April 2013 Senate decision; the default option in the new SFT management form will continue to be online survey administration. Instructors can continue to opt-out of the online survey administration annually using the SFT management form in myInfo at the beginning of the fall/ winter academic terms.

There are no changes to the policy on Student Feedback on Teaching at Lakehead University, the SFT survey, current paper and online administration procedures, or results distribution and storage procedures.

Instructors who have questions about the SFT process including the Student Feedback on Teaching Management form can contact Sarah Prouty, Survey Specialist (Institutional Planning and Analysis) at surveys.ipa@lakeheadu.ca or 807-343-8734.


Calendar Changes for Referral Deadline - January 10

Please note that calendar changes applicable to the 2020-2021 Academic Calendar must be at the Senate Referral stage in the Curriculum Navigator workflow no later than Friday, Jan. 10.

Questions may be directed to the Associate University Secretary, Yvonne Roussel at lusenate@lakeheadu.ca.
