What are Grumble weeks?

JAMKO’s feedback concept Grumble Weeks is an important development tool for education, the students’ common issues, JAMKO and the JAMK UAS. At the Grumble Weeks, organized once a year, students have a chance to give feedback related to studies, instruction, guidance and the functions of the student union with an electronic survey and in follow-up events.

The Grumble weeks survey itself is made in cooperation with JAMK, and the feedback survey that has been previously directed to second year degree students is combined to the Grumble weeks’ feedback concept. This way the feedback can be given more thoroughly and sufficiently to the UAS Quality teams. The length of the survey is kept as short as possible and it contains both open and scaled questions. The questions address the quality of education, student well-being and trusteeship matters.

Annual Grumble Weeks last for two weeks and are a part of the JAMK UAS’ quality assurance system. They were organized for the first time in Spring 2010.
