Dear Undergraduate Student,

 

Many thanks for agreeing to take part in the survey. Your demonstrator has to complete this module as part of their structured PhD programme which is aimed at improving the teaching skills and performance of demonstrators in the undergraduate laboratory. Thus, your feedback is an important part of assessing the demonstrator’s progress.

 

This survey is anonymous and voluntary. It should only take 3-5 mins to complete. Both praise and (where justified) criticism in the ‘comments’ section are welcome. Please avoid any comments of a personal nature. It should be noted that an important part of the laboratory for an undergraduate is working things out for themselves (e.g. certain calculations, yields). The primary role of the demonstrator is to ‘demonstrate’ techniques and help students understand the underlying chemistry. In certain cases a demonstrator may not answer a question (e.g. How do I calculate this? What is the answer to the lab-book question?) if (s)he feels it is part of the experiment for the student to work it out themselves. This is being a good demonstrator and should not be interpreted as being unhelpful.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Director of Teaching and Learning (Postgraduate), School of Chemistry
