Spring Members Meeting Agenda

As usual, the agenda will be made available around four weeks prior to the meeting.

MEETING THEME: Supporting Student Success

The theme for the meeting is 'Supporting Student Success'.  This has been rated as the number one topic for Higher Education CIOs in Australasia for the last three years.

This is encapsulated in CAUDIT's 2018 Top Ten Topics as:  Improving student outcomes through an institutional approach that strategically leverages technology

Consistently high Top Ten ratings reflect the significance of strategies and tools to support student success. Substantive contributions to student success flow from integrating delivery of and access to support across learning and teaching, library services, academic advising, career and other student services. Innovations like augmented reality support personalised experiences and learning, and on and off campus learning opportunities.

Staff and students need seamless access to integrated, accessible student success technologies. They serve retention and timely progress by acknowledging each student’s path to completion. Proactively using student data across different systems enables academics to pre-emptively address issues that may impede student success.

Seamless access implies a student-centred approach. The technical challenge includes balancing migration to cloud-based access with privacy and security considerations. It encompasses designing delivery platforms that foster attributes which influence student success – engagement, building students’ confidence in taking responsibility for their learning, collaboration, knowing when to seek assistance and feeling welcomed when they do.

ICT leaders and their staff meet these challenges through structured interactions with academic and professional staff, and with students. Achieving purposeful integration rests on a willingness across the institution to endorse ongoing, iterative adaptations to technologies that respond to course design parameters and students’ personal circumstances.
