What does student-led teaching award data tell us and how can we use it at a national level?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentation/Speech


Student-Led Teaching Awards (SLTAs) are well established within the Scottish higher education sector as a way to recognise and celebrate teaching excellence. With an emphasis on qualitative rather than quantitative evidence, SLTAs can provide a valuable insight into students’ views on teaching. This workshop will present the summary of a project which drew on an analysis of SLTAs with a specific focus on student views on feedback from assessment. We will present a summary of findings, organised around three key themes emerging from the research, lead a discussion around what STLA data can tell us, and explore what students believe is valuable feedback practice in each of these areas. We will also explore future opportunities for SLTA data, looking at a new data-driven project - led by sparqs, and delivered in partnership with the sector - which considers what other possibilities there are to use, share and understand SLTA data, from the creation of a cross-sector network or community, to the formation of national themes identified and analysed by the sector.
