Introduction

The University of British Columbia values the quality of the teaching we offer to UBC students. End-of-course student surveys provide the university community with information about student experience of their instruction at UBC.

In May 2007 the UBC Vancouver Senate passed a revised policy on Student Evaluation of Teaching while UBC Okanagan currently operates on a policy adopted from Vancouver in 2005. UBC recognizes the importance of high-quality teaching and requires student evaluation of teaching on a regular basis (with some exceptions, as defined by the policy). For most courses, UBC has implemented a modular approach, where departments, faculties and the university can contribute evaluation questions.

In May 2020 both the UBCV and UBCO Senates endorsed a change to the name of this process, from Student Evaluation of Teaching to Student Experience of Instruction. Please see the “Upcoming Changes” section of this site for information on other changes that are planned, based on recommendations endorsed by both UBCO and UBCV Senates.

With the permission of individual faculty members, results for the University Module Items (UMIs) are made available on this site through a CWL login. Please see the “Results” page for more information.
