Making it count
The Higher Education Academy has just published a report entitled Making it count: Reflecting on the National Student Survey in the process of enhancement.
As the HEA says, this report “provides suggestions and reflections on the role that the NSS can play in the enhancement of learning and teaching”, and argues that it is often overlooked as an enhancement tool before going on to state that this “report aims to encourage and enable institutions to reflect on their own use of the NSS, and to prompt reflection on its potential role in the enhancement process”.
For more public information regarding the NSS at Loughborough University – i.e. what it is, how it has impacted, why people should take part, etc. – can be found at http://www.lboro.ac.uk/admin/ar/general/nss/, while details regarding where the NSS fits as part of the wider quality assurance agenda can be found in the Student Handbook at http://www.lboro.ac.uk/students/welcome/handbook/assuringacademicquality/
