Measuring teaching quality

Our student panel has their say

Last week an American study concluded that students are not learning very much in university. New York University sociologist Richard Arum and coauthor, Josipa Roska, discovered that when measuring writing skills, the ability to think critically and to engage in complex reasoning, forty-five per cent of students did not show an improvement on skills such as writing and critical thinking. After four years, 36 per cent of students had barely improved.

We asked our student to rate the teaching quality at their school. As with previous weeks, videos will be posted on our front page, and archived on our You Tube channel.
