Grumble Weeks

Grumble Weeks 2018

The Grumble Weeks are a feedback survey made for the student of JAMK by the Student Union JAMKO and JAMK. This year it took place between 12th and 25th of March 2018. The survey replaced the survey meant for second year students and because of that the questions were remodeled from the previous questionnaires. The questions concerned the quality of education, teaching and guidance, and the wellbeing of students. There were totally 396 answered feedbacks.

The feedbacks were processed confidentially by JAMKO’s Board Members and two different reports were compiled – one public version without the open answers, and one version for the heads of department and quality teams which contains all of the unsensored feedback. JAMKO held also follow-up events for each study field where the feedback was discussed between personnel and students.

Hot topics included network environments and their functionality, the level of teaching quality and different suggestions for improvements to the campuses.

The public reports are published on JAMKO’s website in Finnish but JAMKO’s actives answer the feedback targeted to JAMKO here.

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

Grumble reports

JAMKO reads and processes all feedback given by students after the survey has closed. The grumble itself will be compiled into reports, which will be read by various people all the way up to the administration of the UAS. For every study field, a separate report will be written, which includes grumble that applies that specific field. Reports concerning instruction and guidance will be sent to the quality teams of different units and the heads of departments, who will go through them in quality team meetings. Only heads of departments receive full, uncensored feedback regarding their study field.

Public reports, which have been stripped of names, open answers and references to individuals, will be published on the student union website. This guarantees both the respondents’ and the staff’s anonymity. Specific issues arising from the grumble cannot be addressed directly, but JAMKO will publish and answer the most general feedback it receives on its website.
