Evaluating the effectiveness of residential school program for materials engineering course at CQUniversity, Australia
An anonymous survey was conducted after students attended the residential school for Materials Science and Engineering (ENEG12005) as a course requirement. The objective of the survey was to evaluate the effectiveness of various learning activities in the residential school and to obtain students’ feedback. This paper presents the findings of the survey which was analysed both quantitatively and quantitatively. The survey findings are very encouraging, and provide evidence of effectiveness of the residential activities on students’ learning.
