“DIG for Victory” and “Make Do and Mend”

calendarWednesday, September 11th 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Timezone18 days remaining
At Loughborough we use a network of Feedback Administrators across the University who do the groundwork for Module Feedback with a little DIGing; helping to sow the seeds for Module Feedback in the different Schools across campus and making the Module Feedback set-up process victorious. We will discuss why the DIG (Data Integrity Gateway) is needed at Loughborough, how we go everyone on board and share the successes and the (tiny) lessons learnt from the first Semester of implementation. And there’s no point in gathering feedback from students if you’re not going to do something about it. We will discuss how we have developed and implemented a ‘Closing the Feedback Loop’ process within explorance Blue for our Module Leaders to respond to students letting them know if the module will have to “make do” with its current approach and why, or whether steps will be taken to “mend” the suggestions that arise from the feedback.

Quantifying the Effect of the Learning Experience on…Learning

calendarWednesday, February 5th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone165 days remaining
Can course evaluation results tell us anything about student learning? Sheridan has created a robust multivariate model that allows us to objectively measure (isolate) the extent to which a high-quality learning experience differentially impacts learning in subsequent courses (vs. lower-quality learning experiences). The effect is significant and meaningful; independent of grades (and several other variables), the quality of experience in a course impacts future leaning. In this webinar, we will review the findings and methodology, including how course evaluation data were used in the analysis, as well as implications of the work and opportunities for further research.

Just Don't Call It "Blue" and Other Important Lessons From The Ohio State University’s Implementation Journey

calendarWednesday, April 8th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone228 days remaining
What could be challenging about implementing one survey for an entire campus? One that must be available on the university’s own mobile app. With emails that conform to strict branding standards. And have optional comments. Plus reports for seemingly random people. Just for fun let’s go live during summer when there are 8 different sessions. After that- half a million tasks for Autumn will be no problem, right? Why not add Dynamic Report Access? In fact let’s throw 10 years of historical data in there for good measure. In this webinar, we will show you that using super powers and a band of misfits, not only were did we make all of this happen, we boosted response rates by over 15% at the same time.
