Many learning and teaching institutions use benchmarks to evaluate performance of faculty members. Three of these benchmarks are: 1) student feedback, 2) student grades, and 3) student attrition rates. This paper describes the teaching enhancements the author used to improve the student satisfaction ratings in three higher year Mechanical Engineering courses: Statics & Dynamics, Solid Mechanics & Computational Analysis, and Capstone Thermofluid Engineering. Improvements to student satisfaction and feedback rates were obtained by applying the Central Queensland University 7 principles of good teaching and other innovative practices such as the four-point strategy developed by the author.
