A discussion about online course evaluations, how they could be improved and whether data could be released to students, dominated Tuesday’s Student Senate meeting.
Director of Academic Technology Services Brad Boeke spoke to Student Senate during Speaker’s Podium. Boeke was looking to form a relationship with Senate, since students are the biggest users of academic technology. He also sought students to participate in an advisory group concerning learning management systems.
Boeke took many questions from senators about online course evaluations—and whether any data could be published online for SMU students to use when signing up for classes.
Student Body President Jake Torres asked whether SMU could add two questions to each online course evaluation: 1. Would you take this professor again? and 2. Would you recommend the class?
Diversity Chair Jasmine Carr echoed Torres.
