Reporting to Students: Closing the Feedback Loop Where it Began

calendarWednesday, June 24th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM Eastern Timezone20 days remaining
Student feedback can drive the improvement of teaching and learning. To do so we talk of ‘closing the loop’. Institutions often assume that applying the evaluation results to define or refine strategic improvement plans accomplishes that. However, the loop begins with students and so ‘closing the loop’ should end where it began: reporting the results of course evaluations to the students. This webinar will discuss the importance of reporting to students in ‘closing the feedback loop’ as well as part of the continuous cycle of teaching and learning process improvement. Specifically, it will demonstrate how this process can be implemented with the help of Blue.

360 Reports: Harnessing the Power of Story Telling

calendarWednesday, July 29th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone55 days remaining

Institutions can present 360 feedback in an efficient story telling manner so that it becomes a mechanism that drives meaningful change. Every type of project possesses its own narrative, and 360-reports can be set up in numerous ways to effectively convey a desired narrative. Throughout this webinar we will cover real-world examples of reporting structures for individual 360 assessments, team assessments, engagement surveys, culture assessments, and others. We will walk through the layouts, design, and best practices in reports that can enhance insights. Establishing well-structured reports that inform, inspire, and, ultimately, drive better decisions is an asset to any organization.

Managing Cross-Listed Courses in Blue

calendarWednesday, August 26th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone83 days remaining

It is not uncommon that courses are cross-listed in an institution. For example, an IT Management course in a Business School may be offered to students in the Computer Science Department. The course evaluation results for the cross-listed course would need to be available to both department reports, according to the institution's course evaluation policy and practices. This webinar will show how you can handle cross-listed courses in Blue from data preparation to project settings and, finally, to reporting and report distribution. Additionally, we will share some tips in increasing the level of automation in handling cross-listed courses, such as integrating with SIS and using the Data Integrity Gateway (DIG).
