Universities and colleges often administer student feedback surveys on teaching to elicit students’ views of how a particular course is taught in order to improve teaching quality and provide opportunities for better learning. This paper reports the views of (40) English teachers and (124) General Foundation Programme (GFP) students on student feedback in institutions of higher education in the Sultanate of Oman. Findings reveal variation in the views of teachers and students pertaining to involving students in providing feedback to teachers. The study argues that it is necessary to have consistency in the perceptions of teachers and students on student feedback. The study also confirms the importance of providing proper training for the GFP students on quality feedback and reflective learning before asking them to embark on such a demanding task.
