In Feb 2016 Leeds Beckett Students' Union held a conference to support its Course Reps.
The Centre for Learning and Teaching invited these reps to leave a record of what they valued about their courses.
Two large table cloths were filled.
These all got at least one mention:
wide choice of electives
small cohort size
sense of community
But by far the most frequently remarked on
(approx 6 times more frequently)
Helpful, approachable staff
This was not a systematic student survey.
But it is a snapshot of the views and values of the current Course Reps we spoke to.
They take their obligation to represent seriously...
and know what they value.
