What are Grumble weeks?
Grumble Weeks are arranged 13th – 26th of February
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.
Grumble Weeks’ follow up events
At the field-specific Follow up events, we discuss the feedback from the Grumble Weeks and find ways to develop things among the staff and students. Each study field will have its own event from 12 to 23 September, either remotely or in a hybrid form. The events are hosted by JAMKO’s board.
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.
JAMKO reads and processes all feedback provided by students after Grumble Weeks. The grumbles are compiled into field-specific reports, which are read by the management of the university of applied sciences. A separate feedback report is prepared for each study field, the names and other identifying information of the persons have been removed. Reports with all feedback uncensored are sent to unit management and unit quality officers and quality teams.
JAMKO publishes public reports without identifying information. This ensures that feedback can be given anonymously and without worry.
