Grumble Weeks 2020
Grumble weeks feedback has been processed!
Student Union JAMKO’s feedback concept Grumble Weeks were held from 9 to 26 March, during which students could give feedback through an electronic questionnaire on education, teaching quality, guidance and student well-being. Selected theme “Kuulutko?” (Do you belong? Are You heard?) challenged students to raise their voice for things that are meaningful to themselves, but also to reflect on their sense of community and their own experience of inclusion and accessibility within our university community. This was also taken into consideration in the questions.
A total of 376 JAMK students responded to the survey. The students of tourism and service business were most active in relation to their headcount, about 10% of the students gave feedback. There were varied respondents from every field, both contact and multiform studying as well as bachelor and masters – degrees.
This year, there was a lot of feedback on the quality of teaching and the state of digital learning environments. Many students would like more consistency in these as well as current content. Students have also become concerned about the adequacy of resources for study psychologists. As a positive side several students also feel that they receive sufficient support for their studies.
Petra Blinnikka, a lecturer from tourism and service business, received the most nominations for “the staff member of the year“. She was nominated also last year.
Grumble weeks’ Follow up events were held by field from March 31 to April 2. In the follow-up, JAMKO members presented summaries of the answers in each field. For the first time, the events were held remotely via Zoom. It got a lot of positive feedback and more participants than usual.
The feedback has been compiled into field specific reports and the public one’s have been published on JAMKO’s website in Finnish. The directors of departments and JAMK UAS’ quality teams will receive their own reports that contain all the open feedback.
The public reports from 2020 are published on JAMKO’s website in Finnish
