Morrison, Bruce; Evans, Stephen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
One way that universities assess teaching effectiveness is by eliciting student feedback. However, what standards do students themselves use to judge whether a lecturer is a 'good' teacher?

This article therefore aims to identify the…
