Who needs to survey?

There are two types of teaching surveys. One for lectures and one for class/seminar provision including questions on course evaluation.

If a member of staff delivers all of the lectures and teaches all of the classes for a course, they may just conduct the class/seminar and course survey in a lecture if they prefer. Please notify tqarosurveys@lse.ac.uk if you intend to take up this option. Please also see the section on 'non standard-teaching'

Note: For this exercise, non-permanent and part-time staff are grouped together with Graduate Teaching Assistants as 'GTAs'.

Michaelmas Term

This is applicable to both the class/seminar and course and lecture survey:

  • GTAs (including non-permanent staff) teaching half units with five or more teaching weeks this term.
  • GTAs (including non-permanent staff) teaching full units with five or more teaching weeks this term
  • Permanent staff only teaching in Michaelmas (half units) and with five or more teaching weeks in this term
  • It is optional to survey for GTAs (including non-permanent staff) or permanent staff with less than five weeks of teaching.

Lent Term

This is applicable to both the class/seminar and course and lecture survey:

  • Permanent staff only teaching in Lent (half units) and with five or more teaching weeks this term.
  • Permanent staff on full units with five or more teaching weeks across both terms.
  • GTAs (including non-permanent staff) teaching full units with five or more teaching weeks across Michaelmas and Lent, but who were not surveyed in Michaelmas (due to too few teaching occurrences in Michaelmas).
  • GTAs (including non-permanent staff)teaching half units with five or more teaching weeks this term.
  • Some GTAs whose teaching was surveyed in Michaelmas Term, but are required by their department to be re-surveyed in Lent Term.
  • It is optional to survey for GTAs (including non-permanent staff) or permanent staff with less than five weeks of teaching.
