  • 5. Deakin SETU survey instrument1. This unit was well taught.2. The course materials in this unit were of high quality.3. The workload in this unit was manageable.4. Requirements for completing the assessment tasks in this unit were clear.5. The teaching staff gave me helpful feedback.6. The library resources met my needs for this unit.7. I would recommend this unit to other students.8. The technologies used to deliver the online content in this unit performed satisfactorily.9. The on-line teaching and resources in this unit enhanced my learning experience.10. This unit challenged me to learn.Rating scale: N/A; 1=strongly disagree; 2=disagree; 3=neutral; 4=agree; 5=strongly agree 5

  • 16. FindingsHigh ratings for library resources were likely to be associated with highgeneral ratings of teaching and unit qualityPostgraduate coursework students rated library resources significantlyhigher than students in the first three years of undergraduate programsStudents in one faculty (Health) rated library resources significantlyhigher than students in all other facultiesThere was a strong correlation observed in AUSSE data for both 2009and 2010 between the two items “Used library resources on campusor online” and “Worked on an essay or assignment that requiredintegrating ideas or information from various sources” 16
  • 17. ConclusionsWell-planned learning environments are likely to integrateacademically meaningful student interaction with the libraryInitiatives to improve the value and perception of the qualityof library resources should be focussed on the specificcharacteristics and needs of particular student cohorts tohave maximum impactMore sophisticated assessment tasks that require students tointeract with the library have the potential to result in higherstudent ratings of the value of library resources 17
