Feedback on Teaching

Where possible, we recommend that you integrate both giving feedback 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), they provide both a rating of their experience and narrative comments. To limit student survey burden, you won’t be assessed each time you teach. If you are going for promotion and or advancement, you can request to be assessed at any time.

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

For a more detailed review of protocols and procedures related to feedback on your teaching, please review the Faculty of Medicine’s policy. You can also download samples of the forms that learners use to assess their teachers here.

Discussing Feedback. When you receive your feedback report on one45, you may also receive a list of peer volunteers who have made themselves available to meet with you (virtually or in-person) to discuss questions or concerns you may have.
