Feedback to Teachers OLD

The Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME) Program strives to provide faculty with feedback from students on their teaching. Where possible, we recommend that you integrate both giving and receiving feedback into your teaching session. This will help you reflect on the session while it is fresh and guide your planning as you continue to teach.

Receiving Feedback

Through a more formal process, all UBC learners provide feedback to teachers at the end of a required learning experience, such as a clinical rotation or a cluster of small group sessions. Using forms appropriate for the teaching activity (clinical, large group/academic session or small group), learners provide both a rating of their experience and narrative comments. To limit student survey burden, you won’t be assessed each time you teach.

Feedback for Promotion and Advancement

If you are going for promotion and or advancement, you can request to be assessed at any time. Teachers who are going for promotion, re-appointment, tenure or awards and would like to ensure that they are assessed, should self identify by filling out the assessment request form, prior to the start of the term or educational activity that they are teaching in.

Reports

You will receive an electronic report via one45 usually twice a year, 3 months after either the term and at the end of the academic year, provided that you have been assessed by 4 or more learners. If you do not receive a minimum of 4 assessments, you can request informal feedback from your Educational Lead.

Viewing reports on one45: Once reports are compiled, the one45 system will send you a notification email that your report is ready for viewing. Click here for detailed information on accessing and understanding your reports.

Discussing Feedback

When you receive your feedback report on one45, you may also receive a list of Peer Support Volunteers who have made themselves available to meet with you to discuss questions or concerns you may have. To learn more about the Peer Support Volunteer Program, click here.
