Meet the evasys team at Excellence in Education 2022

Senior leaders from higher and further education institutions who are heading along to Excellence in Education in Northamptonshire will be able to connect with the evasys team to discuss how to achieve maximum impact from an institution-wide survey and evaluation process.

  • Taking place on 2nd and 3rd November at Staverton Park Hotel and Golf Club in Daventry, Excellence in Education brings together senior leaders from across the entire higher and further education sector to share ideas and experiences with colleagues.

The event will focus on the increasing role that technology is playing in the education of students and provide guidance on how institutions can step one step ahead of the ever evolving technology landscape. With interaction between students and lecturers changing, technology is now an integral part of teaching and learning.

Using technology to capture and act on the student voice

The evasys survey and evaluation platform is a key technology used in capturing and acting on the student voice.

It helps institutions to deliver a consistent student survey experience, while supporting academic staff interaction with the survey process. It provides opportunities for students to feed back on their experiences, and creates general awareness within the student body that the institution continually seeks feedback.

Using evasys enables academic staff to reflect on their teaching and learning practice and close the feedback loop with students, consistently. The platform provides academic leaders with access to actionable insights and management information, providing the ability to analyse trends, forecast the future and solve any identified challenges. In many cases, evasys helps universities to improve National Student Survey (NSS) outcomes, particularly around Question 25 on the Student Voice.

If any of this sounds appealing, please grab a chat with a member of the evasys team. Dr Helena Lim and Glenda Saint John will both be in attendance at Excellence in Education and there’s not much that they don’t know about creating, managing and getting results from a robust survey and evaluation process.
