Background: Students’ feedback about teaching-learning process is recognized to be a valuable tool
for the teacher who strives for excellence in his performance. In our department, we regularly obtain feedback
from students by way of a questionnaire. Objectives: 1.To assess the effectiveness & quality of teaching. 2. To
implement changes wherever possible so as to improve effectiveness of teaching and to make it more studentcentered.
Materials & Methods: A questionnaire was administered to students to obtain their feedback about
teaching in Dept of Physiology. It had questions about teaching methodology, evaluation and those of general
nature. To enhance validity, it was anonymous & it was taken after the students had passed I MBBS
examination. Results: Majority of students seem to prefer greater use of powerpoint along with blackboard.
They have expressed interest in computer-assisted teaching. Seminars, quizzes and guest lectures are regarded
as good adjuvant to routine teaching. They have suggested MCQ tests and theory viva after finishing a
particular system and periodic practical tests. They have found pace of teaching comfortable but have
protested about lack of time for extracurricular activities. Discussion & results: Based on students’ feedback,
certain modifications were made in the Departmental teaching. Students’ feedback about positive and
negative points of individual teachers was communicated to them.
