Course feedback as a course element 

Student feedback is an important part of an inclusive teaching and learning culture at Aalto University, and it is supported by the following principles: feedback is interactive, impactfull and streamlined. With these principles Aalto hopes to support the development of an open feedback culture. It means than feedback is constructively and easily given and actively discussed and utilised to promote interaction and development of teaching and learning.

Collecting feedback can be seen as a course element that is planned in a similar manner as e.g. assessment on a course. The planning can focus around three phases: what happens before the course, during the course and at the end of the course.
