Adding an Additional myExperience Survey Question

This process is voluntary and simple to complete.

Course questions are linked to a single component of the course (e.g. Lecture or tutorial). On login to the system, this component will be displayed in your list.

Please note – you do not need to be teaching in this component in order to add the course question. If your course/s are being surveyed, look out for an email with the subject ‘myExperience survey – your opportunity to add an additional question’.  

If you are co-convening a course, all convenors will have access to the additional course question task. We recommend that you agree between yourselves which question is to be added, and then that one person takes responsibility for adding the question.
