Multiple Datasource Challenges in Course and Teaching Evaluations? University of Auckland’s Experience in Using Data Sync Tool

calendarTuesday, November 28th 2017, 08:00 PM - 08:45 PM EDT37 days remaining
How to locate and link data from multiple sources has become one of the common challenges for many tertiary institutions in administering course and teaching evaluations. The University of Auckland was confronted with the same challenge, when course and teaching evaluations were moved to the centralised online system on eXplorance’s Blue platform. We used Data Sync Tool (DST), Blue’s companion application, as the technical solution for streamlining data flow from the various data sources and systems to the cloud-hosted instance in a timely manner. This community-led webinar will briefly discuss the multiple source data challenges in the system implementation, with a focus on utilizing DST to configure data sources, in order to perform automated data syncing and administer course and teaching evaluations institution-wide.

This webinar will take place November 29th at 11:00 NZDT.

Presenter: Lizzie Li, PhD, Evaluations Coordinator, Academic Quality Office, University of Auckland.

A Tale of Two Faculties: Course Evaluation Implementation at a Large University, a Study of Contrasts and Lessons Learned

calendarWednesday, January 10th 2018, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM EDT80 days remaining
The University of Toronto is in a phased process of implementing the University of Toronto’s Cascaded Course Evaluation Framework (CCEF). The CCEF aims to represent both centralized and decentralized teaching and learning priorities across various multiple levels of the University (e.g. faculties or divisions, departments, instructors). In this webinar, we share insights gained through two contrasting cases of faculty/division-level implementation, one which experienced early and consistent success, and a second with a greater number of challenges. We discuss the features of these cases as well as indicators of relative progress and outcomes between them. As well, we describe the lessons learned from these cases in terms of the importance of community consultation and buy-in, collaboration and engagement with stakeholders, and, building and maintaining sustainable processes as new course evaluation systems are implemented.

Presenters: Victoria James, Data Coordinator, University of Toronto; Gregory Hum, PhD, Assistant Director, Teaching Assessment, University of Toronto
