Faculty comment: "The student survey results for DSE212 show very good levels of overall satisfaction with the quality of the module (90.1%). This figure is notable given the comparative size of the module as reflected in the sample of 612 responses. 92.7% of students expressed that the module met its stated learning outcomes, with 89.4% satisfied with the teaching materials. These results indicate effective teaching and learning. This teaching and learning is also generally enjoyed by students, to the extent that 86.1% were satisfied with the study experience and 83.9% reported enjoying their study. A lower percentage reported being able to keep up with the workload (70.3%), and this is reflected in individual student comments to the effect that DSE212 is an intensive and demanding module, involving lots of reading and a comprehensive assessment regime (6 TMAs plus an exam). To address this, the module team has simplified and clarified the online Assessment Guidance to help students to prepare for the workload."
