Learning Community Forum
The Learning Community Forum was formerly known as Student-Staff Feedback Committee (SSFC).
The purpose of the Forum is to ensure that the views of students are given proper weight in the processes of course and module review, and to ensure that the concerns of students about their courses of study are represented to the academic staff throughout the academic year. The recommendations of the Forum are considered by the Departmental Teaching Committee. Minutes of the Forum are then taken into consideration in the Department’s course reviews.
The Postgraduate Learning Community Forum is the official forum in which the collective views of postgraduate students can be made known to staff, and proposals advanced and discussed to promote the academic and general well-being of postgraduate students in the Department. The Committee meets at least once a semester, as required by University quality standards. The staff representatives comprise the Head of Department and the Director of Postgraduate Studies (who also chairs the meeting). All research and taught course postgraduates in the Department and all other staff are invited to attend the meetings, which take place during one of the weekly postgraduate lunches and are chaired by the elected postgraduate representative (see below).
