Course and Lecturer Evaluation by Students at Higher Institutions: Review and Challenges (The Case of Methodist University College Ghana)
by Open Science Repository Computer and Information Sciences
Course and lecturer evaluation is a phenomenon that has been in practice for quite some time now. It is a widespread activity that is conducted in almost all academic institutions; public and private alike. The practice is an indication that a lecturer has to be well prepared before he delivers his lecture and that he has to conduct himself as professionally as possible when dealing with his students in and outside the lecture room. This paper looks at the topic in an African context as there already exists enormous literature outside Africa. The research used a qualitative approach to solicit views from the staff of the Quality Assurance Unit of the University on the challenges of the exercise and uses of the results. It is realised that course and lecturer evaluation by students is not a witch-hunting exercise, but an exercise to help improve teaching performance of lecturers. It is also a way of letting the institution know students’ perception of it in terms of facilities that are at the disposal of students which act as learning aids.Keywords:
