Enhancement of academic curriculum delivery based on students’ feedback

Abstract :

Outcome based engineering education (OBEE) requires continual quality improvement (CQI) to ensure that the students achieve the intended learning outcomes. The most important stakeholder in the OBEE learning environment is students and their input in the CQI process is needed to ensure that the teaching and learning activities are relevant and suitable. This paper reports the process of obtaining students’ feedbacks, how the information is processed and the improvement measures that were implemented at the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). Existing feedback mechanism in the quality management system include online course assessment system, students dialog session and exit survey among the graduating class. Based on the inputs, improvements were made on the teaching and learning activities such as the introduction of integrated project in the second and third year, open-ended laboratory assignments, formalization of industrial visits and lectures as part of the learning activities. The effectiveness of the mechanisms for gathering students’ feedback was also assessed and reported in this paper.
