Why do GSLS require reports?
Evaluation is an essential part of any learning experience, including the continued development of individual RD activities and the GSLS programme as a whole. The GSLS have a requirement for three reports to be returned for each event, though these are not difficult to produce and do not require a large amount of time.
All reports will be published online as a record of our funded activities.
Gathering feedback from participants soon after the activity has finished using a feedback survey provides valuable information that helps determine if the activity met its intended aims. By standardising the questions in the survey the GSLS can better compare the impact of different courses.
A template survey is provided in the Application Process section of this site which represents the minimum data requirement for returning to the GSLS. A summary of attendance also needs to be returned along with the collated data from the survey as the Feedback Report.
The Feedback Report is submitted online as a form and a file attachment which is available to download.
The Feedback Report must be returned within one calendar month of the activity.
The Evaluation Report is your opportunity as an activity organiser to reflect on the success of your event in comparison with your original bid. This report will contain information about how you organised and delivered your activity, reflection on its strengths and weaknesses and an analysis of the participant feedback. It will also contain a section suggesting improvements for future activities.
A template report is provided in the Application Process section of this site and the final report can be submitted as an online form or uploaded as a file. if your bid is successful you should consult this document before your event so that you are better prepared to answer the questions.
The Evaluation Report must be returned by 1st July 2016 OR before any subsequent reapplications for funding.
The Financial Report is required by the GSLS which must report to the Researcher Development Committee (RDC) on how funds have been spent. This is essential as it provides evidence to the University justifying the use of money to fund RD activities.
A template report is provided in the Application Process section of this site and the final report can be submitted as an online form or uploaded as a file. The costs should be broken down into the following categories:
- Speaker / Trainer Costs (Including Travel)
- Room / Facility Booking
- Course Materials / Consumables
- Hospitality / Refreshments
