Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper aims to explore the faculty members’ use of students’ feedback to improve course materials and teaching methods at the College of Education at Sultan Qaboos University. Triangulation was used by applying literary evidence, a questionnaire composed of the students’ course survey items, and interviews to answer the research questions. The survey sample was (72) faculty members for the questionnaire and (7) of them for the interviews. Findings show that all the survey items on course materials and teaching methods are used by faculty members. These items were studied in terms of their relation to academic rank and teaching experience variables. It was also found that the faculty members review their instructional methods in line with the students’ feedback and that they vary in their approach of revision. In light of these findings, the paper put forward its conclusions and recommendations. Key words: students’ feedback, teaching methods, teaching evaluation.
