Activity Feedback & Evaluation

If you have been involved in any CDI activity over the last 8 years, we strongly value hearing your thoughts on how it was conducted, how the experience may assist and inform your work today, and what sorts of activities you would like to see CDI undertake in the future.

Please let us know which activity you are commenting on and you can email your thoughts directly to cdi@anu.edu.au

The questions below come from our project evaluation form, and may help prompt your feedback on particular aspects of our activities, but don't feel bound by them, we are very happy to receive your thoughts - brief or extensive - in any form you like. So too, let us know if you would like to have your thoughts included on our Guestbook.

Along with feedback on our courses, at CDI we also really like just hearing about what our past students and project participants are up to. So if you have a new exciting job or promotion, or a great project you are working on, or anything else of interest, please drop us a line directly to cdi@anu.edu.au and we'd be very happy to include your news on our new Alumni Update page.

Finally, CDI treats all feedback with sensitivity, and anonymous submissions are very welcome.

Many thanks,
