Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


The purpose of this study was to examine the post-lecture evaluation by the students taking a course (“Tomorrow’s Leaders”) that attempted to promote their leadership qualities and intrapersonal competencies at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong. Except for the last lecture, students were invited to respond to a 12-item post-lecture questionnaire after each lecture. Results showed that the students had positive perceptions of the subject, class and teacher attributes, and they had positive global evaluation of the teacher and the subject. The post-lecture evaluation questionnaire was found to possess good psychometric properties. Multiple regression analyses showed that subject, class and teacher attributes were predictive of global evaluation of the lecture and the teacher. In conjunction with other evaluation findings, the present findings strongly suggest that students had positive perceptions of the attributes and benefits of “Tomorrow’s Leaders”.
