There is some evidence to suggest that changes at a course level may be effective. Ramsden’s 34 ❘ Teaching, supervising, learning course experience questionnaire (Ramsden, 1991) measures five subscales: good teaching (providing useful and timely feedback, clear explanations, making the course interesting and understanding students); clear goals and standards (clear aims, objectives and expectations regarding standard of work); appropriate assessment (extent to which assessment measures thinking and understanding rather than factual recall); appropriate workload (the extent to which workloads interfere with student learning); and generic skills (extent to which studies have supported the development of generic skills).
Questions. Learners taking a discipline that is new to them may struggle to think in the appropriate manner (an important point in modular programmes). Teachers need to understand where learners are starting from so that they can get the correct level and seek to correct underlying misconceptions or gaps. Teachers and learners are both responsible for learning happening. Teachers need to be aware of the impact of cultural background and beliefs on learner behaviour, interpretation and understanding.
It is these middle two elements in the cycle that can be strongly influenced by feedback from others. This moves towards the fourth point (AE), using the enhanced understanding to make decisions and problem-solve, and test implications and usage in new situations. The experiential cycle does not simply involve having an experience, or ‘doing’, but also reflecting, processing, thinking and furthering understanding, and usually ‘improvement’ the next time something is encountered or done. By extension, this cyclical process has a part to play in even the most abstract and theoretical disciplines where the academic is concerned to help the learner acquire the ‘tools of the trade’ or the modes of thinking central to the discipline, such as in philosophy or literary criticism.
