Co-creating evaluation and impact measures for academic advising and personal tutor provision

Glenda Saint John 2024

On Tuesday 9th April, from 11.20 am until 12.15 pm in Room QA238, evasys Head of Engagement Glenda Saint John will be leading a session titled ‘Unlocking Potential: co-creating evaluation and impact measures for academic advising and personal tutor provision’.

Glenda will utilise the dynamic World Café format, where participants rotate around tables, to produce a session aimed at engaging participants in lively and collaborative discussion about how personal tutoring provision could be evaluated to ensure maximum impact. While some data can be found in the various methods of capturing student voice, very little capturing of the staff voice in this area has been undertaken.

This session will provide a platform to express this staff voice by exploring what your needs and wants are in relation to personal tutoring evaluation and impact measures, resulting in the generation of group defined ideas and inspiration to take back to your institution.

Tapping into survey data across the student lifecycle

The evasys insights and evaluation solution manages surveys right across the student journey, providing datapoints that benefit academic advisers and personal tutors by identifying student sentiment and facilitating interventions where needed to ensure student success.

The evasys survey ecosystem encompasses a wide range of survey topics; from the standard module and course evaluation through to the more specific areas around pre-arrival, student belonging, first year engagement, national surveys and graduate outcomes.
