Student feedback has appeared in the forefront of higher education quality, particularly the issues of effectiveness and the use of student feedback to affect improvement in higher education teaching and learning, and other areas of the students’ tertiary experience. Despite this, there has been a relative lack of academic literature available, especially in a book format. This book focuses on the experiences of academics, higher education leaders and managers with expertise in these areas.

Enhancing Learning and Teaching through Student Feedback in Engineering is the first in a series on student feedback focusing on a specific discipline, in this case engineering. It expands on topics covered in the previous book, by the same authors. Valuable contributions have been made from a variety of experts in the area of higher education quality and student feedback in the field of engineering.
