The College of Engineering and Computer Science offers many opportunities for student representation, both at the class and year level.
In the coming weeks, we'll be opening up nominations for course representatives for Semester 2, 2017. You can nominate yourself as a class representative for one or more of the courses you are enrolled in. A class representative is a student who collects feedback directly from your peers about how the class is running. Feedback is generally collected anonymously, and can include:
- the content of the course,
- the proposed assessment,
- equipment/course resourcing
- and any other issues that are encountered or need to be resolved.
For engineering courses, the class representative will collate this feedback and contact the relevant year representative. For Computer science courses, the class representative will collate feedback and present it directly to the Student Representative Council. Nomination information for class representative is sent out to students and course convenors in the first two weeks of semester.
If you're interested in being a Course Rep, please feel free to approach your Course Convenors to put your name down. If you'd like more information on what's involved in being a Course Rep, please don't hesitate to contact CECS Student Services (email@example.com; or N202, Level 2, CSIT Building (108)).
Student Representative Council (SRC)
The SRC is where feedback that is collected from courses is presented. The SRC membership consists of the Associate Director Education, the relevant year representatives, the ANUSA CECS representatives, and a member of CECS Student Services. Any items raised at SRC can either be directly resolved in the meeting, or taken to the course convenors meeting the following week to be discussed and resolved.
Class Feedback and SELT feedback
Class representatives provide an opportunity for students and the Research Schools to discuss issues in real time, as they arise during the semester. Changes can often be accommodated at the time, to improve how the course is running and student's experience of a course. SELTs on the other hand, are formal surveys that are sent out at the end of semester, and conducted at a university wide level. SELT's look at a course more broadly and seek to gauge student satisfaction. Both mechanisms play an important role in shaping how courses are running and will run.
Other Means for Feedback
Students can at any time, either drop by or email CECS Student Services with an issue for resolution - email firstname.lastname@example.org; or N202, Level 2, CSIT Building (108).
