AllWell? 2018 questionnaire: Awareness of study well-being has improved

The AllWell? study well-being questionnaire was sent in February 2018 to all of Aalto's first-year master’s and second year bachelor’s students.

 

The response rate was 39%, which is clearly higher than last year (29%).

Response rate reached even over 70% in certain programmes where AllWell? questionnaire or well-being issues have been recently discussed among students and staff. Programme-level information is available this year to about 90 programmes or major subjects, compared to about 60 in 2017. Increasing awareness and openness in study well-being related issues in the community may be considered as one of this spring’s highlights.

At university level, the results of questionnaire are very similar as in 2017. There have been some changes on programme level. Compared to last year, the amount of students who are in the risk of having burnout has stayed more or less the same (a bit less than 20%). Like last year, the results show that Aalto students are willing to deeply understand what they are learning. When it comes to learning, the attractiveness and inspiration of teaching, as well as confidence in self-efficacy, play key role. It is possible to study fluently and successfully when there is a positive and constructing atmosphere between the student and study environment.

What next? Concrete actions in spring 2018

The vice deans of education will receive the results of the questionnaire by mid-March. AllWell? team presents school-specific results at Aalto schools in co-operation with Aalto University Student Union (AYY) and study organizations. In addition, the programmes with a response rate high enough, will receive programme-level data. The aim is to identify programme specific strengths and areas of development and to find appropriate ways to improve study well-being. More detailed information on programme level visits will be available soon. The visits will start in the beginning of April.

After the questionnaire ended, the students who replied received a personal feedback which provided tips and help for things like better stress handling and ways to improve their own learning skills. Courses offered to students and online material on study well-being will be further developed during the spring.
